Funding application for CmdStan Installer project

Hi @SGB ,

@mitzimorris and I have been working on a set of CmdStan Installers that are simple and much more user friendly for the Stan community to use. We would like to apply for a grant from the Chan Zuckerberg foundation under their Essential Open Source Software for Science funding grant system. We would be applying under their cycle 4 funding tier to help further this work for the rest of the year as part of NumFOCUS.
Essential Open Source Software for Science - Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
The deadline for their letter of intent is due on Tuesday, March 30, 2021. We would like to send a letter out by Monday evening. We would like to get permission from the @SGB by Monday evening March 28,2021 to do so. Can the @SGB put this on their agenda for Monday, March 28, 2021 if they can? Thanks again and any help or feedback with this is much appreciated.

Hi Brian,

I’ll put it on the agenda for tonight and super cool you guys are picking this up. I know Breck is also doing a letter of intent for this grant application together with the people from PyMC and ArviZ.

Kind regards, Duco
