Home Depot Community Impact Grants Program
Gift cards support housing and community programs

The Home Depot Community Impact Grants Program provides support to nonprofit organizations, public schools, and public service agencies in the U.S. that are using the power of volunteers to improve the physical health of their communities. Proposals for the following community improvement activities will be considered:

  • repairs, refurbishments, and modifications to low-income and/or transitional veteran’s housing or community facilities (schools, community centers, senior centers, etc.);
  • weatherizing or increasing energy efficiency of low-income and/or transitional veteran’s housing or community facilities;
  • planting trees or community gardens and/or landscaping community facilities that serve veterans.

Priority is given to projects that help veterans stay in their homes comfortably. Grants of up to $5,000 are made in the form of The Home Depot gift cards for the purchase of tools, materials, or services. Requests will be accepted through August 13, 2012. (Applicants will receive a response within six weeks of the receipt of the request.) Visit the Home Depot website to submit an online application.
