The grant round we announced a month ago for the new Survival and Flourishing Fund is closing in 3 days. We haven't gotten that many applications, so I would recommend applying.

From the original announcement post:

The plan is to make a total of $1MM-$2MM in grants to organizations working on the long term flourishing and survival of humanity.
At this point in time SFF can only make grants to charities and not individuals, so if you have a project or organization that you want to get funding for, you will have to either already be part of an established charity, found one, or be sponsored by an existing charity.

While we can't make grants to individuals, we can make grants to university-affiliated individuals.

When is the next round likely to be? (the EA Hotel is still working on getting charitable status)

My guess is in around 4 months, though I don't know of any concrete plans. So take this as a highly tentative prediction.
