Deadline: October 31, 2011
The Home Depot Foundation is accepting applications for its Community Impact Grants Program from nonprofit organizations, public schools, and public service agencies in the United States that are using the power of volunteers to improve the physical health of their communities.
In light of the current housing market, the foundation’s 2011 funding will prioritize projects that help veterans, seniors, and the disabled stay in their homes comfortably, including home repair, modification, and weatherization projects.
Grants must support work completed by community volunteers in the U.S. Proposals for the following community improvement activities will be considered: repairs, refurbishments, and modifications to low-income and/or transitional housing or community facilities (schools, community centers, senior centers, etc.); weatherizing or increasing energy efficiency of low-income and/or transitional housing or community facilities; planting trees or community gardens and/or landscaping community facilities; and development and/or improvement of parks or green spaces.
Only registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, tax-exempt public schools, and tax-exempt public agencies in the U.S. are eligible to apply.
Grants of up to $5,000 will be made in the form of Home Depot gift cards for the purchase of tools, materials, or services. The Community Impact Grants Program will accept proposals for grants beginning April 4, 2011, through October 31, 2011. Applications must be submitted using the foundation’s online application system. Once grant applications are reviewed, all applicants will receive a written response within six weeks of receipt of a request.
