First Round of Approvals

First Round of Approvals

Hi everyone!

Hope you’re all busy minting some hedgies :P

We’re super excited to announce that our first round of grant approvals has been processed! To kick things off, we have 9 approved grants with a total of $510,000.00 in pledged funding. Please see below the table describing each grant.

Since this first round tackled a number of existing RFPs, we’d also like to inform you of additional RFPs that have been added to list, you can find them here. And as always, we’re happy to hear new ideas not included in any RFPs. Keep the applications coming!

Have a great week! 🦔
