The grant is named #IJ4EU (Investigative Journalism for Europe) and media organizations can apply for a maximum of €50,000 per project, once.

From the #IJ4EU launch statement:

"The Investigative Journalism for Europe (#IJ4EU) fund is intended to foster and strengthen collaboration among European Union-based journalists and newsrooms on revelations in the public interest and of cross-border significance. The fund aims to support investigations that reflect the media's watchdog role and that assist the public in holding those in power accountable for their actions and to their obligations. In doing so, it seeks to contribute to the sustainability of democracy and the rule of law in the EU."
