Funding: Small Grants

For projects needing 0.1-10Ξ

Creators who have either been given a grant from NounsDAO or received retroactive funding for proliferating Nouns.

Overview

The Small Grants Committee was created by Nouns proposal 13. It's run by a group of Nouners to be a "flexible pool of capital" that can be deployed when either the project is time sensitive, the ask is too small for an official proposal, or retroactive funding is merited because the work is already done. If you have questions you can ask in the #grants-and-retro-funding channel in the Nouns Discord.

Small Grant vs. retro funding

Small Grant: upfront payment to fund a project
Retroactive Funding: payment for work already completed

Requesting a grant

Open a post on Discourse and prefix the title with "Small Grants: " for visibility. From there a committee member will reach out to you, but you can also post the link to your Discourse post in the #grants-and-retro-funding channel in the Nouns Discord to get it on their radar.


Please outline:

  • What is the project
  • How it will proliferate Nouns (or already has)
  • How much upfront funding you want, if the projects completed the committee will decide on if/how much retro funds are given
