The Dash Treasury System currently provides close to $2,000,000 per month to fund projects voted to provide benefit to the Dash ecosystem. If you are interested in the types of projects funded you can read these articles at Dash Force News. The November 2017 budget will pay out to 30 different projects.
Each month the owners of Dash's Masternodes vote on submitted projects those that receive at least 10% of available votes get funded.
While entering a proposal is not "simple" or free it is something that worthwhile projects even from people or companies new to Dash have funded every month. If you would like more information use the contact form on this site and we can discuss your idea.
This video does a great job of explaining the process.
