This is very interesting and I have to say that it’s the first time I’ve heard of something of this nature.

For the first time in Minnesota — and perhaps in the nation — a journalism school has received a grant to help two daily newspapers adapt their products to an increasingly Internet-based industry.

The Minnesota Job Skills Partnership program has given the Duluth News Tribune, the St. Paul Pioneer Press and the University of Minnesota’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication a total of $238,000 to help retrain the newspaper staffs.

I can’t recall when a government agency has assisted a news organization.
