There's also a grant[0] which Jessica's group in Boston is working off
of for exactly this type of thing, but I don't remember where they're
at in terms of using up the funding. They helped put on an event in
Philly and were recently a part of the meetup in Indianapolis. You'd
have to flesh out more of the details of this event to see that it's
in line with what the grant was awarded for, but it's something to
keep in mind.

Additionally, this could also fall under the umbrella of the PSF
Sprints committee, thus available for up to $300 reimbursement.
