Grants Process

placeholder image

Olympus Grants is designed to fill various gaps in the Olympus ecosystem by funding projects which support the DAO's initiatives but don't fit into existing projects.

Where a token swap, incubator investment, or yield-redirection is not quite right, Olympus Grants will fill the gap. The OGP (Olympus Grants Program) is funded with $1.5 M of DAO approved $OHM. OGP 1 will run over a 3.3 month period as an MVP and reevaluate after that period, wherein a report will be provided to the community with suggested next actions. OGP is built to bolster the objectives of other departments such as Partnerships, Olympus Pro, Incubator, and Give in ways that require a more flexible funding mechanism. And in true LFG spirit, Olympus has selected 13 new initial grantees (and a partnership with Gitcoin) to help kick off our Grants Program!

Olympus Grants aims to put Olympus' Values into action by filling in the gaps of the ecosystem and the broader crypto space, focusing on Education, Infrastructure, and Utility while also building on the knowledge provided by similar web3 Grant programs such as those pioneered by Uniswap, Lido, Gitcoin, or the Ethereum Foundation- to name a few (but there are many others). Applications are open effective immediately and will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Like a mycelial network, sharing nutrients and messages between trees in an old-growth forest, Grants helps lay the foundation for OHM's thriving.
