Very interested to hear of your group's program. There are a couple others as you noted.
The one Ricky (xinchenjian.com), PsyTek (alphaOneLabs.com) and I are involved with is the "Hackerspace Space Program", which is a developing US Govt DARPA funded project. You can read more about it from the links in my mail list post ... http://lists.hackerspaces.org/pipermail/spaceprogram/2012-April/000169.html
I'd recommend joining that discussion list and adding your comments.
The basic idea of this program is to distribute Grant $$ to hackerspaces working on education and research 'to further humanity's survival' on earth and in space. We are in the very early contract negotiation stage but when it gets rolling it will be a good way to get funding for small projects.
I looked for your FBook page but nothing turned up. Can you send me a direct link? Does Fbook segregate groups by geographic/national region?
