    Hi, my name is Giovanni Fontana Antonelli, CEO of Archi.Media Trust, a non-profit organization based in Italy and Iraq. I would like to ask whether the figure indicated in the above message – $4,250 – is the maximum eligible for grants or it is a different figure. Our organization is very interested in working in Yemen on cultural heritage protection, which is our specialty.
    Thank you. Best regards
