HOT 2018 Microgrants Programme Launches!
Many OSM communities around the world are achieving amazing results on zero or near-zero budgets. HOT wants to support the development of these communities, through providing funding for basic resources. For example, GPS devices, internet access, and training costs. We're looking to provide up to ten Microgrants between $2,000 - $5,000 USD. Our goal is to enable the development of local OSM communities who are contributing to OSM to reduce vulnerability to disasters and crises in their communities, to increase skills, capacity and experience. We will award grants to projects which broadly contribute to this mission.
More details on the programme and the application form can be found here. HOT support will be provided before, during and after the grant period. Applications must be received by midnight on the 28th February 2018.
We are primarily looking to support communities in Southeast Asia, South Asia, Latin America/Caribbean and Africa, but will consider other locations.
With many thanks to all donors who supported our #mapthedifference campaign to make this programme possible, especially our generous corporate partners.
