How to Grant

The grant provides every qualified community with an initial grant plus a long-term grant by milestones. In Round1, there will be:

  1. Initial grants: according to initial review result of the applications from communities, every grantee will receive $300 - $1,000 in initial grants according to the initial review results.

  2. Long-term grant pool. All the grantees from Initial Grants will enter the long-term community&DAO grant program, which means they will keep receiving grants when achieving certain milestones.

    1. Milestones will be set in two ways. Grants can either select a milestone from the wishlist provided by DoraHacks, or propose a new milestone for discussion. For both ways, direct communication with DoraHacks is necessary.
    2. Grants in the long-term grant program are NOT fixed amounts. It needs to be proposed by the grantee community based on the corresponding milestone, and be approved by the DoraHacks team.
