    seems like a trivial amount – why doesn’t the PSF pay for half if not all of that??

      Because no one has written a grant application to get the money. I’m also not sure that the PSF hands out grants that big for code development efforts.

        Biggest grant I can find by the PSF is 10k https://www.python.org/psf/records/board/resolutions/

          I don’t imagine them really wanting to give people a reason to change the defacto standard python away from one they control.

            The PSF doesn’t control CPython, and doesn’t care which Python you use, as long as you use Python :-)
