Grant Programs
Critical Bounties fund infrastructure development, tools, research & other initiatives that drive Bitcoin layer development.

Open Bounties
DeGrants is a community-led initiative where community members dole out grants for efforts they deem important or interesting and fall outside the scope of Critical Bounties.
Chapters are local community groups driving activation in a specific geography. Support for chapters is a collaborative effort between the Stacks Foundation team & local leaders.
The Residency Program fuels subject matter experts for open-ended research, experimentation, & other long-term projects.
