The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation made two grants in support of open government. The first awards $1.7 million to the University of Missouri School of Journalism to merge the National Freedom of Information Coalition into its National Freedom of Information Center. The coalition, founded in 1992, works with state open government coalitions to protect public access to information. The second grant, $200,000, underwrites the national Sunshine Week project launched by the American Society of Newspaper Editors last year. (10/10/05)
