Greetings, Wikimedians! The community review  period for this round of the annual plan grants program  is underway. We'd love to have you join the review! Five movement affiliates have submitted annual plans and budgets. During this time, the Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC)  invites you to review their submitted plans, ask questions, and offer comments and feedback by April 30.
The organizations whose proposals, plans and budgets are available for your review include: * Wikimedia Armenia <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:APG/Proposals/2015-2016_round2/Wikimedia_Armenia/Proposal_form> * Wikimédia France <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:APG/Proposals/2015-2016_round2/Wikim%C3%A9dia_France/Proposal_form> * Wikimedia Norge <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:APG/Proposals/2015-2016_round2/Wikimedia_Norge/Proposal_form> * The Centre for Internet and Society <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:APG/Proposals/2015-2016_round2/The_Centre_for_Internet_and_Society/Proposal_form> * The Wikimedia Foundation <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_Annual_Plan/2016-2017/draft> Review the proposals and offer questions or comments on the discussion pages : *https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:APG/Proposals/2015-2016_round2/Community_review <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:APG/Proposals/2015-2016_round2/Community_review> * In May, the Funds Dissemination Committee will meet to make recommendations to WMF's Board of Trustees on how to allocate movement funds to these affiliates in order to achieve the most impact. Your input and participation will be valuable as they make these recommendations to the Board of Trustees. Visit the annual plan grant portal  for more information about the program, the FDC, or upcoming milestones. You can reach the FDC support staff at fdcsupp...@wikimedia.org. *More about community review*: The APG proposal submission date is followed by a 30-day open comment period, when anyone is invited to provide input on and ask questions about a specific proposal on its discussion page. Applicants are also expected to respond to input and questions during this period, although they are not able to change the proposal form itself after the submission date. The FDC will review the discussion pages during their deliberations in May as one of many inputs to the decision-making process. While anyone may comment on proposals after the open comment period closes on 30 April, the FDC may not be able to take comments made after this period into consideration when reaching its decisions. *How to review*: Please visit the community review page to view the proposals being considered and follow the instructions. While the proposals are only available in English, your comments can be in any language. *Why your feedback matters*: We hope this open comment period will add to an in-depth and robust review of each proposal, and help keep our grantmaking transparent and collaborative. The FDC highly values feedback and insights from the Wikimedia community in making its funding recommendations.
