Home Depot’s “Retool Your School” Project for HBCUs

Home Depot is mounting a new effort to benefit historically black colleges and universities. HBCUs have until March 15 to register online with a campus improvement project “that will have an enduring impact on the lives of students, faculty, and alumni for generations to come.” Then, beginning April 5, the public can log on to the Home Depot Web site and vote for the project they believe to be most worthy of receiving funding.

The top vote-getter will receive a $50,000 grant to fund its campus improvement project. Ten other HBCUs will each receive $10,000 grants.

HBCUs that want to register for the grant program can do so by clicking here.
