Hi Mike-

Thanks for the questions.  The amounts of the grants and descriptions of them are in the press release:

We will be sure to add that information to Meta as well.

Hi Lisa,

Thanks for the info, and congratulations to the grantees! I'm trying to
find out more information about the grants (US$ amount, details of what
the money will be spent on, and expected impact), but I can't see the
applications or further information on meta - could you point towards it
