AUGUSTA — A nonprofit organization that specializes in investigative journalism in Maine has received grants totaling $125,000.

The Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting says it has received a $100,000 grant from Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation for the second year in a row and a $25,000 grant from the Nicholas B. Ottaway Foundation for the third consecutive year.

The center says both grants will support its production of investigative journalism about Maine state government and elections.

Jay Davis, president of the center’s board of directors, says the grants mean that it can continue providing watchdog journalism to newspapers and other media across the state as a public service.
