Stacks Grants Beta Community Feedback

As we plan to evolve and grow the grant program over the year ahead, we’d love to gather input from existing and potential grantees. We’ll be facilitating an open call on the Discord hangout channel on Friday, January 22nd at 11 am CT/1700UTC.

We’ll be asking

  1. What is working about the grant program?
  2. What is not working?
  3. What would you like to see more of?

If you cannot make that time, please feel free to answer the above questions here as a response to this post.

Thank you!

What’s working - fast response to initial proposal; good comms with team; good tools for contracts and payments.

What’s not working - I miss seeing proposals on Github. It gave me a sense of being part of a community of makers. I got really excited about some of the proposals. Now I don’t know what is happening. Who got funding? Who didn’t? What is happening on their project? I don’t know.
Say what you like about the old app mining program but it really created a sense of community.

What would you like to see more of - More discussion. Updates

@stacksadmin kudo’s to you for all the work you do to create community
