Submitting Proposals

This information is here for your convenience

The source of truth for all governance related processes is the Operating Manual (opens new window).

# Governance Fund Grant Proposals

Projects may submit a proposal to request OP tokens from the Governance Fund (opens new window). The Optimism Grants Council is welcome to consider any and all proposals which would drive growth or address a gap in the Optimism ecosystem, including public goods projects.

However, funding should come with an expectation of growth-related deliverables. It is not the intended purpose of the Governance Fund to retroactively fund public goods without an expectation of future work. There is a distinct OP allocation dedicated to this, which will be distributed via the Citizens' House at a later date.

When writing your proposal, please adhere to the grant proposal template (opens new window).

You can apply for grant funding from the Governance Fund by submitting a grant proposal to the Optimism Grants Council (opens new window) and following the procedures outlined in the Grants Council Internal Operating Procedures (opens new window).

# Non-Grant Proposal Types

There are other types of proposals (opens new window) that you can submit:

  • Protocol Upgrade
  • Inflation Adjustment
  • Director Removal

There is no minimum holding requirement for submitting a proposal but all non-grant proposals must be approved by four delegates with sufficient voting power to move to a vote (as defined in the operating manual (opens new window)).

The process for submitting non-grant proposals is outlined in the the operating manual (opens new window)
