**Jonathan Worthington** recently [requested an extension of his Perl 6 Performance and Reliability Engineering grant](http://news.perlfoundation.org/2019/01/grant-extension-request-perl-6-3.html).
I'm pleased to announce that the Board of Directors approved extension of another $10,000. It'll allow him to dedicate another 167 hours to this work.
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 hard work and monthly updates with the grant manager, Matthias Bloch.
EDIT: The original request was $20,000 but I have adjusted the amount to $10,000 for this round due to the remaining fund. I have opened new discussion within TPF to allocate more money to the fund.
