One of DPL duties is taking care of Debian money, below you can find pointers to money-related resources.
Sprint Program - the most common and possibly useful way of putting into use Debian money
Sponsoring Guidelines - best practices / requirements to get sponsored with Debian money
Using Money - what you (as a DD) can ask sponsoring for
Reimbursement - how to get reimbursed for Debian-related expenses (in case you're entitled to)
Contribution certificate: you can ask the DPL for a Debian contribution certificate (please don't ask for one just for vanity though, as they take some time to verify and send it out; however if you need one for a job or similar reasons, you are more than welcome)
Handover process for new DPLs
Your help is welcome!
