Home Depot Accepting Applications for Historically Black Colleges and Universities Improvement Grant Program


Home Depot’s Retool Your School Campus Improvement program provides grants through a two-tier structure for campus and facility improvements at historically black colleges and universities.

The program awards Tier I and Tier II grants based on a combination of consumer voting and advisory board panel selections. The college with the highest score will receive a $50,000 Tier I grant; thirteen other applicants will receive Tier II grants of $10,000 each. An additional three Campus Pride grants of $25,000 each will be awarded to the schools with the most votes and social media activity, as adetermined by Home Depot.

Grant funds will go toward an improvement project at each school that is likely to have impact on the lives of students, faculty, and alumni for generations to come.

To be eligible, applicants must have official HBCU status, as determined by the United States Department of Education, and a federal tax identification number.

For complete application and eligibility guidelines, including information about last year’s awardees, visit the Home Depot Web site.
