Knight Drupal Initiative closing for 2008, program to reopen during DrupalCON DC

When the Knight Foundation announced the Knight Drupal Initiative at DrupalCON Boston, we entered a partnership with the Drupal community.

Our goal was to establish an open, ongoing grant application process for the purpose of creating better open source web applications.

The last six months have been phenomenal. Too successful, in fact. We currently have six proposals under funding review, with over $600,000 (USD) in potential grants for Drupal projects.

Proposal review requirements

In the current draft of the proposal review guide, we set the following standard:

[Items in brackets are subject to change.]

At the end of each [monthly] review period, applications with [10 or more] votes and a rating of [4] or higher will be passed to Knight Foundation for funding review.

When we were first starting, hitting this threshold was often a challenge. Now that we have some momentum, we have some larger and more visible projects. Do we need to revise the rating standard?
