Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
I get asked a lot if I know anyone looking for Drupal work. I know a few people but trying to keep track of who is and who isn't just to answer random people who ask me doesn't work very well. So I decided to make a wiki page.
If you are currently taking on Drupal work, add yourself to the list. It's your responsibility to maintain your own row in the table so, if you are going to use it, please keep it up to date.
If you are looking to hire someone, make sure you heed the warning that people on the list are not being vouched for by anyone. It is an unmoderated list and very much buyer beware. It's meant as a list of potential people to contact and nothing more. If you want to limit your search to only people with a known track record of service to the community, use http://drupal.org/drupal-services instead.
