Hello Wikimedians,

We are excited to announce the launch of a new Wikimedia Foundation grants program, Rapid Grants! 

Rapid Grants fund Wikimedia community members -- individuals, groups, or organizations contributing to Wikimedia projects -- to organize projects throughout the year for up to USD 2,000. Projects can include experiments or standard needs that don't need broad review to get started. Applications are reviewed weekly by WMF staff.
