Dear all,

We’re happy to let you know that we have again mini-grants (a small fund of between $200-$400) available for groups to organize Open Data Day events on Saturday 3 March.

This year we have partnered with four organisations providing support in the following tracks:

  • Follow the Money and Open Contracting events with support by Hivos
  • Open Science and Open Research Data events supported by SPARC
  • Events with Open Mapping at their core supported through a new, exciting partnership with Mapbox
  • Open Data for Equal Development sponsored through the Hewlett Foundation.

Applications are open through Sunday, February 4th 2018: you can find more information on who can apply, and a link to the form, on our blog at

Good luck and let us know here if you have any questions!
