There are two ways to apply for a grant: Rapid Grants and Community Grants. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.

Rapid Grants (<$100k, faster process, smaller grants)

Fill out this application. The application will only be shared with members of the grants committee. If it makes sense, we will schedule a call to chat about your application and get back to you with a decision.

Community Grants ($100k-$500k, slower process, larger grants)

Fill out this application. If it makes sense, we will schedule a call to chat about your application and ask you to share your proposal on Aave's community forum. After incorporating feedback from the community, we will get back to you with a final decision.

Grants Above $500k

If you have a grant application above $500k, we recommend directly sharing your proposal on Aave's community forum. Feel free to contact aavegrants@gmail.com if you want feedback. Approving this grant will be outside Aave Grants DAO's mandate, however, we are happy to provide feedback.

Still not sure? Email us at aavegrants@gmail.com and we'll help you figure out the process that's right for you.

Wait, that's it?!

Yes! If your project or idea makes Aave better, you should apply for a grant.
