This hackathon is a great ida. I'm interested in building an app using the Twilio Video API, for families to easily communicate and be with each other virtually during this time of isolation. However, my main concern is the cost of running such an app. The Twilio video api would incur costs that I would not be able to afford. I'd like the app/service to be free to people (with time limitations). I'm not interested in making a profit from the app. Is there anything Twilio can do to assist in this regard? Thank you!

Hi Mario! That sounds great :) Specifically for Covid we have a new grant for non-profits. I'd start by checking that out and see if you apply for that twilio.com/covid.
