> Dear all,
> This year’s Open Data Day, an annual celebration of open data all over the world, will take place on Saturday 4 March. For the fifth time in history, groups from around the world will create local events on the day where they will use open data in their communities. It is an opportunity to show the benefits of open data and encourage the adoption of open data policies in government, business and civil society.
> With funding from SPARC, the Open Contracting Program of Hivos and Article 19, and Open Knowledge International, we will distribute $12,500 worth of mini-grants to support your event ideas.
> A mini-grant is a grant of between $200-$400 for groups to create Open Data Day events. 
> In past years, we gave grants to groups based on location. This year, we want to take ODD up a notch and focus on problems that open data can solve. This year, there are four categories to the grant – Open Research Data, Open Contracting and tracking public money flows, Open Data for Environment and Open Data for Human Rights. More information on the minigrants and how to apply is available from our blog: https://blog.okfn.org/2017/01/25/announcing-the-2017-international-open-data-day-mini-grants-scheme/ <https://blog.okfn.org/2017/01/25/announcing-the-2017-international-open-data-day-mini-grants-scheme/>. The application deadline is Monday 13 February.
