2012/08/13 Home Depot Community Impact Grants

Community Impact Grants Program

Grants, up to $5,000, are available to registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, public schools, or tax-exempt public service agencies in the U.S. that are using the power of volunteers to improve the physical health of their community.  Grants are given in the form of The Home Depot gift cards for the purchase of tools, materials, or services.

The Home Depot Foundation’s Community Impact Grant Program will accept proposals for grants beginning February 6, 2012 through August 13, 2012.

Application Considerations

We receive many worthwhile requests and cannot accommodate all of them.   More competitive grant proposals will specifically identify projects for veterans and will include housing repairs, modifications, and weatherization work.  

Proposals for community improvement activities which include planting trees or community gardens and/or landscaping community facilities that serve veterans.

Once grant applications are reviewed, all applicants will receive a written response within six weeks of receipt of a request. Please do not contact your local store or The Home Depot Customer Care helpline to inquire about the status of your application. Should you have any questions about this grant program please e-mail the Foundation by clicking here. Only proposals submitted through the online application process will be considered for funding.  Donation requests submitted by mail, phone, or e-mail will not receive funding and will be directed to the online application process.
