An [https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/osmf-talk/2021-February/007708.html apology] was issued by board members Mikel Maron and Joost Schouppe regarding conflicts of interest in the awarding of microgrants in 2020, as both were closely associated with successful grantees.
 
'''Background'''<br>
The trial run of the OSMF microgrants program was overseen by the [[Microgrants/Committee|Microgrants committee]], whose composition was decided by the board. Initially, the program was set to fund 10 projects with a budget of up to 5000 Euros per project and for a maximum of 50.000 Euros. The policy framework can be read [[Microgrants/Policy_Framework|here]]. All the project proposals (funded or not) are visible on the [[osm:Microgrants/Microgrants_2020|OSM wiki]] and some of the 12 selected proposals were presented [https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2020/07/01/osmf-microgrants-program-congratulations-to-selected-projects/ on the OSM blog]. You can read the [https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2020/02/17/call-for-microgrants-committee/ initial call here].
