The Home Depot Foundation's Community Impact Grants 2018

Bob Meland - 2/22/2017

Every year The Home Depot Foundation’s Community Impact Grants program awards grants of up to $5,000 to charitable veterans groups like VFW Posts for repair and renovation of their buildings.

Grants will be awarded in the form of The Home Depot gift cards for the purchase of tools, building materials, or services. All work should be performed by VFW Post members or other community volunteers. This grant will not pay for repairs that require contractors.

Only applications submitted online will be considered. The VFW Foundation has created a step-by-step application guide which can be downloaded here. All applicants will receive a written decision from The Home Depot Foundation within six weeks of submission.

To apply today, click here, or for more information on the application process, visit: http://homedepotfoundation.org/page/applying-for-a-grant.

If you are having issues with the application, please do not contact your local Home Depot store. Questions may be directed to Jason Couch, VFW Foundation grants coordinator, at 816-968-1174 or jcouch@vfw.org.
