What is a community newspaper and what is the NNA/NNAF doing to help keep them relevant? It takes a healthy community to support a healthy newspaper. But a healthy newspaper can also promote a healthy community.  It takes hands-on idea development, good news coverage and creative spirits to help communities and newspapers to thrive.

We are using our peer networks to support each other through tough times - Great Ideas Exchange, Facebook Community Forum, Journalism Training, Postal Training and Convention.  We are using our limited resources to give the industry new tools.  We are looking around corners to help both communities and newspapers. The key to the thriving community newspaper is investment—not just of money, but of time, energy, creativity and our own community like NNA and others that are helping us through a tough time.
