The bad news is that the Council has suspended its SOS grant program as of this cycle of grantees. SOS grants were for the grant winners and for the runners’ up who needed small amounts to realize a project. Thanks to Brian McCutcheon for the heads up and the link. And congratulations, Brian, and all the winners. Everybody else, keep on working, now. Next time is yours. (image is McCutcheon’s “Ultralounger” 2000)
