As Grant for the Web enters 2021 we are building on our commitment to bring diversity, equity and inclusion to our program by making sure that we spark innovation, ideas and opportunities with people and communities too often used and then left behind. A key strategy in doing this is that we need to expand the voices and people feeding into our program and work with them to expand our knowledge, reach and connectivity to a globally diverse community.
We are excited to announce that we have awarded the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) a $268,700 USD grant to help ensure that the Grant for the Web program, grantees, and community shape an emerging Web Monetization ecosystem favorable to open standardization.
