The Grants Committee has concluded the voting of the March/April 2020 round.
There was one proposal this round, which was approved. As the Grants Committee is operating without a budget at this time, we have sent the request to be funded to the Board. As soon as we have a decision from the Board, we will post a new blog entry and update this one.
**[RakuAST](https://news.perlfoundation.org/post/gp_rakuast)** (8,500 USD)
**Voting results: Approved: 8 YES votes, 0 NO votes, 2 abstentions (40 points)
The committee members were generally positive about this proposal.
We accept proposals throughout the year; our next round of review will begin late May 2020. You can [submit proposals](https://www.perlfoundation.org/how-to-write-a-proposal.html) at any time.
