Chia Cultivation Grant Program

Chia Network is committed to growing and nurturing the Chia ecosystem in as many ways as possible, not only through applications and functionality we develop but via encouraging our highly engaged community to unleash its creativity within the ecosystem.

We know that members of the community will create amazing open source projects of their own and that some of those projects will very likely stand as pillars of the community and ecosystem.

To that end, in an effort to further support high-potential projects and teams, Chia Networks is excited to announce the launch of the Chia Cultivation Grant program!

People or teams who have caught the eye of Chia’s senior leadership and present a compelling proposal as to why they feel their vision, talent, and expertise are uniquely positioned to add material value to the community are provided modest financial support via this grant program.

How to Apply

If you have a team with a project vision you think would be a potential candidate for a Grant, you can reach out to us at [email protected].

For a grant application to reach the approval process stage within the Grant Committee, it needs to present a project plan for a product that you feel will elevate the Chia Ecosystem and further the growth and adoption of the technology. This plan must include the following:
1. A background on your team
2. A full summary of the proposed product or idea
3. A breakdown of deliverable milestones and timelines
4. Fiscal breakdown of the Grant request and how it will be applied to #3
5. A summary of the product plan post-launch and how you plan to sustain the project beyond grant funding.

A good rule of thumb is, approach the grant submission like you would if pitching investors!

Take Note!

Due to the volume of applications and interest, we cannot guarantee we will be able to follow up with all applicants individually and will be prioritizing those who present a fully fleshed out in-depth proposal that incorporates not only a solid idea but milestones, fiscal and resource budgets, team information, etc.

Additionally, efforts to contact Chia Network Leadership directly to seek updates on a grant application outside of the communications flow with the grant team may result in adverse disruption of the grant approval process.

Also please note the grant process is not a short one. We typically process submissions in batches roughly every 8 to 12 weeks. Once a Grant has been approved, expect to work with us for another 2-4 weeks hashing out the associated paperwork. Once the paperwork is completed, anticipate another ~30 – 45 days before the initial grant payment(s) are made.
