In January 2020, the Center for Community Media at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY launched the Advertising Boost Initiative to assist print and online outlets in New York City to become more effective in accessing their share of city agencies’ advertising budgets. CCM serves as an information bridge between the outlets, city agencies and advertising agencies. We advocate for the community media sector, making clear to marketing directors and communications staff at city agencies just how vital a role the community media play in New York City civic life.
