Submit a General Proposal

We support all initiatives looking to redefine the way people build and use finance applications and encourage proposals that share our vision.

Step 1–Application Process:
Anyone with ideas to grow and collaborate on Avalanche is invited to apply for a grant. The process consists of three rounds: (1) a form submission with proposal details; (2) although optional, you can request an introduction to the AVA Labs team and a Q&A session; (3) you will be informed of your application result and if successful, the amount of your grant.

Step 2 (Optional)–Grants Process:
Once accepted, a member of the AVA Labs team will work with your project as your Grant Ambassador. You will work with your Grant Ambassador to establish milestones for your project, which will be used to assess your progress.

Step 3–Requirements:
All projects must be open-source (published with an open-source software license) and available on GitHub. If you prefer a private repo, please invite your Grant Ambassador to the repo. Without full transparency on your project, your grant will be subject to revocation.

The Avalanche community is an open and collaborative ecosystem with members who are professional and ethical. We reserve the right to remove anyone who behaves in a way that contradicts the values of the community.
