The Home Depot Foundation Grants to Open on February 1, 2018:

Applications to submit The Home Depot (HD) Foundation Community Impact Grant are scheduled to begin on February 1, 2018. Eligible VFW Posts may receive up to $5,000 to fix up their buildings. Grants are awarded on a first-come first-serve basis until funding is exhausted. To begin the process, go to:

https://corporate.homedepot.com/grants/community-impact-grants

To help you complete the application, the VFW Foundation has once again prepared a step-by-step how-to apply guide. Any deviation from this guide will most likely result in not being able to submit the application. To receive this how-to-apply guide, send an email to: foundation@vfw.org

Type the following in the email subject heading: Home Depot Guide Request

Please note that the guide will not be emailed until HD Foundation Community Impact Grant application is reviewed first to ensure the how-to guide is up-to-date. The application must be filled out via the internet only (no telephone calls, emails or written submissions to HD will be accepted nor will you be able to turn this application in at your local HD store).

If your Post receives funding, it will come in the form of HD gift cards that can be used to buy materials at your local HD store. You will need to recruit Post members or other community volunteers to do the work.

The project must be completed within six months. You will also be required to fill out a final project report. Failure to do so will negatively impact your Post’s ability to receive any future funding from HD.

After submission of the application, you should receive a written email response from HD Foundation, usually within six weeks, letting you know if you received the grant.

Should you have any further questions or need to discuss special concerns, please contact Jason Couch, VFW Foundation Grants Coordinator, at (816) 968-1174 or jcouch@vfw.org.
