The Grants Committee has concluded voting on the September 2020 round. Two grant requests were submitted:
[General Perl OpenAPI Validator / Interpreter](https://news.perlfoundation.org/post/updated_grant_proposal_general_perl_openapi_validator) (USD 8,370)
**VOTING RESULTS: Not Approved. 1 YES vote (2 points), 5 NO votes, 3 abstentions**
Some comments and concerns brought up by the Grants Committee members include:
* Would like to see more tangible deadlines
* A better analysis of why this is needed
* Timeframe seems overly optimistic
[Ć-to-Raku translator](https://news.perlfoundation.org/post/grant_proposal_cito_to_raku_translator) (USD 8,192)
**VOTING RESULTS: Not Approved. 0 YES votes, 5 NO votes, 4 abstentions**
While this seems like an interesting project, is wasn't exactly clear what needs this is filling for the Raku community.
