Home Depot Announces Housing Impact Grants Program

Deadline: September 15, 2008; and December 15, 2008

Home Depot (http://corporate.homedepot.com/wps/portal/) has aligned its online grants program with the Home Depot Foundation’s (http://homedepotfoundation.org/) Affordable Housing Built Responsibly program and will focus exclusively on housing.

The Home Depot Housing Impact Grants program supports affordable housing projects built or preserved with environmentally friendly, efficient, and durable materials that increase energy and water efficiency, improve indoor air quality, and reduce maintenance costs. The grant program supports 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organizations in the United States and organizations with registered status in Canada.

Grants range between $500 and $3,000 each. Preference will be given to requests that engage community stakeholders and result in building or rebuilding houses and/or apartments that are affordable to individuals/families earning a modest income (typically 80 percent or less of the area median income).

Applicants who pass the program’s online Eligibility Quiz must then complete and submit the entire application in order to be considered for a grant. The 2008 Housing Impact Grant Program will accept applications according to the following schedule: August 1 to September 15, 2008; and November 1 to December 15, 2008. In order to be considered during a grant cycle, the application must be completed and submitted prior to the application deadline.
