Grant Programs
Fueling the builders, doers, and leaders that are taking us toward a safer, more equitable, more open internet powered by Bitcoin.
All Critical Bounties have been awarded for Q4. Follow @StacksOrg on X or 'watch' Grants on Github for new opportunities in Q1 2024.
Critical Bounties fund infrastructure development, tools, research & other initiatives that drive Bitcoin layer development.
The Residency Program fuels subject matter experts for open-ended research, experimentation, & other long-term projects.
Chapters are local community groups driving activation in a specific geography. Support for chapters is a collaborative effort between our team & local leaders.
DeGrants is a community-led program initiative where community members dole out grants for efforts its deems important or interesting and fall outside the scope of Critical Bounties.
The latest from Grantees, Residents, and more.

Introducing the Stacks Decentralized Grants Pilot
We’re excited to announce that applications for the Stacks Decentralized Grants – Pilot Program (Stacks De-grants Pilot) are now open.
What’s new with the Stacks Grants Program?
With the upcoming network upgrades (Nakamoto and sBTC), the grants program has the opportunity to leverage Critical Bounties, or RFP-style grants, to help get the highest priority tools/technologies into the hands of builders and users.
About The Programs
Grants supports builders on a mission to activate the Bitcoin economy through broader adoption. We believe Bitcoin and adjacent open-source technology ecosystems will become the foundation for a safer, more equitable, more open internet.
