Can I appeal after my Grant is denied?

If you believe your Grant was incorrectly denied you are able to appeal.

Reasons you might appeal

  • Reviewer error - The grant does not violate current policy
  • Updated policy - A Gitcoin policy was updated which makes your Grant eligible
  • Gray area - The current policies are unclear in relation to your grant
  • Novel situations - You believe a current policy should be changed to better reflect the norms of the community
  • Grant creation error - You accidentally submitted your grant with incorrect or incomplete information, causing it to be denied

How to appeal

You can begin the appeal process by submitting a Gitcoin Appeal Application.​
