Google has released details of the Geo Challenge Grants program – an effort by Google to enable organizations to create maps that will enhance their work and impact. Apply and submit your proposal online here by December 22nd, 2008. See more at Google.org
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.
