The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $15,000 to Genspace, a DIYbio lab in New York, to support a meeting between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and key members of the DIYbio community in April 2017. The main purpose of the meeting was to strengthen ties between the DIYbio lab community and the FBI with a new administration in office. Genspace used the grant to cover travel costs for meeting participants.

This is a discretionary grant.
