Mozilla Gigabit Community Fund Letter of Intent (LOI) Form
*** THE LETTER OF INTENT DEADLINE FOR THIS ROUND HAS PASSED. Please contact your local Mozilla contact to discuss project eligibility. ***

Letters of Intent (LOI) are a REQUIRED FIRST STEP FOR ALL Gigabit Community Fund project proposals.

The local portfolio lead for your city will provide feedback on the content of your LOI to help you shape your project idea. They will also advise you on whether or not you should submit a full proposal.

THIS IS NOT A FINAL SUBMISSION. You need not present a polished pitch; instead, please use this form to brainstorm and then refine your project idea in collaboration with your local portfolio manager. You will have an opportunity to adjust your proposal based on staff feedback.

Please submit your Intent to Apply form well before July 5, 2017 in order to receive timely feedback for the August 1, 2017 final proposal submission deadline. The earlier you submit this form, the more likely you will receive support.

SUCCESSFUL LOI SUBMISSIONS will receive an email invitation to submit a complete, final application to the Gigabit Community Fund on or before Friday July 15, 2017. Final proposal submissions will be facilitated on the Fluxx application submission platform.
