Facebook said that its grant would be divided into 2 parts. $25 million would be used to support local media companies and organizations. The remaining $75 million would be used to aid other media companies and organizations across the globe. In its initial round, Facebook would provide help for 50 media organizations in the U.S. and Canada.
