We took.a shot and hoped for more, but its a start. We have to find a way to make good use of it. We can't mount a worldwide survey with that much and we SHOULD not do a stupid self selection survey. That leaves two options: piggyback or pilot. Global surveys are historically rare but have become more frequent with COVID. With $50k, we might get a few questions added to something already being fielded. Alternatively,  we focus on a particular geographic region and language and see if we can get valuable enough data to get further funds. We'll definitely have to give it some thought. Another committee.  Sigh.

Subject: [At-Large] ICANN Funding Request FY22-05

Regarding ICANN's allocation of resources in support of end-user polling by and for ALAC<https://community.icann.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=151847258&preview=/151847258/164626907/FY22%20ABR%20Process_Assessment%20Report_FINAL.pdf>:

To Heidi who advanced this request<https://community.icann.org/display/projfinadhocws/ALAC+-+FY22+Additional+Budget+Requests?preview=/151847210/158139112/FY22%20Community%20Request%20-%20Polling%5B1%5D.docx> within ICANN, and to all who had a part of creating it, a heartfelt and personal thank you.

I am extremely heartened by the allocation of funds for survey-based research to support and drive ALAC's ongoing work. Some of you may have seen my participation in At-Large mailing lists complaining about the lack of such resources, and now here they are. I have no idea whether my contributions played any role in development of this formal request of which I was not aware, but regardless I am sincerely appreciative of the significant effort that I know has gone into creating and advancing the request.

So now is the time to deliver, now that the opportunity is at hand. I have no idea what kind of sub-group and/or what ALAC support staff will be tasked to turn this approval into a detailed plan; I am at the service of whatever mechanism will be used. I hope to be useful to this process and make a positive contribution for the first time in a long time.

And, again, thank you to all involved.
