Google Community Mapping Grants
Posted by on November 17, 2008
Google is offering grants from US$5000-US$100,000 for community mapping projects:
“. . . maps are a powerful tool for non-profits of all kinds to communicate issues, understand needs, and create more effective implementation plans. Many of you have come to us with compelling ways that maps can help you and your organization increase impact, and we want to help you make your mapping ideas a reality. We’re offering a pilot program of Geo Challenge Grants to organizations working in areas related to our core initiatives.
Through this program, we’ll be offering grants valued between US$5,000 and US$100,000, either directly from Google.org, or through grant recommendations from the Google.org Fund of Tides Foundation. These
grants will be issued through an open application process – legally qualified, public charitable organizations with a compelling idea about how maps can help them work more effectively are eligible. Smaller mapping applications requiring only static data might receive US$5,000 in funding, while development of tools that enable many organizations to create maps might receive US$100,000. We’re partnering with Google Earth
Outreach on this program to help evaluate proposals from a technical standpoint and to help us ensure the grants are successful. ”
Apply and submit your proposal online by December 22, 2008.
