Thanks John for being so fast out of the blocks!

We’ll get back to you once we have confirmation of budget and have finalised our process for allocating regional TGP funding

We grew our program substantially this year (from 7 grantees in 2018 to 13 in 2019), and I suspect we'll want to expand the reach again this year, particularly given we're running it in the Pacific Islands. OSGeo support has been key to accessing additional sources of funding so we'll most likely be asking again this year.
