for support of coverage of governance, democratic process, and the future of the American idea  
This grant will support The Atlantic’s coverage of governance, democracy, and the future of the American idea amid the nation’s current political and cultural fracturing. While these are perennial themes for The Atlantic’s coverage, this support will give the magazine greater flexibility to produce timely, deeper reporting and to convene an actionable public discussion about how to restore deliberation and consensus for the health of the polity. The Atlantic will also be able to take greater risks in reporting on new perspectives and model civil public conversation on the nation’s largest platform for reaching engaged citizens of all political stripes. The Atlantic will make this content freely available to all readers online.
