Confidential Tips

Do you have sensitive information regarding a matter of public concern? We offer several ways to securely communicate with Grid. No method is perfect, and we encourage you to research each before reaching out.

What makes a good news tip?

Investigations require evidence. Whenever possible, let us know what kind of documentation exists with your submission. We are interested in stories that reveal systemic injustice or widespread harm, and help readers better understand their world.

Postal Mail

Mail a letter or package to Grid

Address: Grid
c/o Investigations
400 NORTH CAPITOL ST NW

Sending a letter or package is the only method to get physical content to Grid. If appropriate measures are taken, conventional mail can be a good way to provide information anonymously.

We recommend that you use a public mailbox, not a post office.
