The future is NEAR...build it with us!

Open Source & Public Goods Grants: These grants are for teams developing open source components, whether standalone or as part of a project. (This means you can still apply in this category if you’re building a startup, but please clearly specify which components will be open-source.)

Grants can range from $1k to a maximum of $30k USD (with the exception of teams invited to submit an application for Maintainer grants, Major Integration grants, and/or Meta Guild grants). 


Welcome to the NEAR Foundation’s Grants submissions page. Please start your grant application here.

Please make sure to fill out all sections of the application and provide as much detail as possible. All applications will be received and reviewed on a rolling basis. Only one application per individual and/or team can be submitted at a time.

After completing a grant successfully (reaching all the milestones and/or shipping to mainnet), an individual or team can re-apply for another grant. All grants will be issued as a combination of USD/EUR and NEAR tokens.

When your application has been successfully received, we will follow up about your submission by email. If you have questions that aren’t answered on near.org/grants, please contact us via email at grants@near.org.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
