Civil Foundation is offering token grants of Civil and Ether (ETH) to eligible newsrooms to cover the cost of applying to the Civil Registry. After you create your Newsroom Registry Profile, you can apply for a Civil Foundation Grant.
Eligible newsrooms must:
- Publish fact-based, information-based content
- Feature reporting that is independent from commercial interests and advocacy organizations
- Produce original content (not just content aggregated from other sources)
- Have an existing website and URL that is in use.
Applying to the Civil Registry costs 5000 CVL tokens in addition to an estimated $10 worth of ETH transaction fees.
The Civil Foundation will review your Newsroom Registry Profile in assessing your eligibility for a grant. The Newsroom Registry Profile cannot be edited or updated during this review. The Foundation may take up to 30 days to process grant applications. Newsrooms will be notified via email.
You must complete a verification walkthrough tutorial and steps necessary to receive and store Civil tokens (CVL). A successful token grant application does not allow you to bypass review and potential challenge by the Civil community
We recommend you consult a tax professional about reporting a token-based grant.
