Here’s the grant and data tracker spreadsheet.

Tracking funding and data related to disasters can be complex and come from multiple different agencies and organizations, on the local, state, and federal levels. This is a template of a tracker you can copy and customize to keep track of different grants and funding related to specific emergencies or disasters, and specific data sets that might be relevant to your work. This spreadsheet can be copied and customized to fit your individual reporting needs or be shared by your newsroom. 

The spreadsheet includes different tabs for grants, data sets, and public records requests.
