We're excited to share the news that Google.org just announced a $2.1 million grant for Sunlight to expand our mission to open government data. The work will include everything from extending our policy and data work to the municipal level to supporting the creation of policy case studies that demonstrate the power and success of tech-driven transparency to improve civic engagement and people's lives. Thanks to Google.org's support we will also be able to expand our mini-grant program to grow the community working towards a common goal.
This backing is an affirmation of our goals, and we're thrilled to have Google.org support.
We're eager to get started on this work and honored that another organization has found the Sunlight Foundation's work worthy of support. Thank you Google.org! You now join the ranks of our many funders, which readers can check out on our funding page.
Stay tuned for more updates about how you can get involved.
