**Jonathan Worthington** recently [requested an extension of his Perl 6 Performance and Reliability Engineering grant](http://news.perlfoundation.org/2018/01/grant-extension-request-perl-6-1.html).
I'm pleased to announce that the Board of Directors approved extension of another $10,000. It'll allow him to dedicate another 400 hours to this work. Additional $210 of expense was approved to cover the wire tranfer fee from the past payments and the next payment.
I would like to thank the community members who took time to comment on this grant extension request and our sponsors who made funding the grant possible through our Perl 6 Development Fund.
I also appreciate Jonathan Worthington's continued work.
