Thanks, Nemo, but WissensWert is not the same as the Community Project Budget.

WissensWert is a contest for projects also from out of the Wikimedia
scope and with a budget of less than 5.000 Euros per project.

Community Project Budget is supporting projects with a budget from
over 5.000 Euro and is budgeted with 250k in 2013.

I will change the information on the meta grants page.

Happy to answer further questions, all best,
