Approved .eco keyword grants remain in the pool of environmental community grant names forever. Phase One (October - December 2016) grantees will have 12 months from May 1, 2017 to launch something on their .eco domain name.

As long as names are being actively used, there is no limit on the duration of the grant. If your grant name is not in use inside the 12-month activation window, we'll be in touch to discuss a plan for your use of the granted domain name(s) or for returning them to the community. In other words, if you're actively using your .eco domain, it's yours forever. If you stop using your granted .eco domain, it will be returned to the pool of grant names so that other non-profits can apply to use it.
