The Xeric Foundation has announced its most recent grant recipients. A total of $32,042 was awarded for eight comic book projects. The Foundation has awarded in excess of $2.3M to comic book creators and nonprofit organizations since its first grant cycle in September 1992.

Established by Peter Laird, co-creator of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Northampton, MA based foundation offers financial assistance to self-publishing comic book creators in the US and Canada and to qualified charitable and nonprofit organizations in western Massachusetts.

The next deadline and review dates for comic book grants are March 31, 2010 and May 1, 2010, respectively. The charitable organization grants are decided annually in March and announced separately.
