The Diversity Development Fund (DDF) provides up to $15,000 in research and development funding to producers of color to develop single documentary programs for public television. Projects should reach underserved audiences often overlooked by conventional programming. The application deadline is on the horizon—September 25.

Filmmaker Peter Nicks was awarded DDF funding for his project THE WAITING ROOM, an in-depth look at the American healthcare system through the Alameda County Medical Center in Oakland, California.

He was recently featured in several media outlets for his innovative use of social media in filmmaking.
