About the Retool Your School Program
We are excited to enter our sixth year of RETOOL YOUR SCHOOL with new program improvements and $255,000 in grants to award! For the first time in program history, The Home Depot will award THREE (3) Tier I $50,000 grants! This year, we’ve designed a new to way increase participating schools’ chances of winning $50,000. Check it out . . .
- New Cluster Structure — increases your chances of winning $50,000. All HBCUs competing for a grant will be placed into one of three clusters, based on student enrollment. The clusters are identified as follows:
- Cluster 1: 4,000+ students
- Cluster 2: 1,200-3,999
- Cluster 3: less than 1,199 students
With the incorporation of clusters, participating HBCUs are now only in competition with those schools similar in size based on student enrollment.
- New Grant Structure — $255,000 will be awarded across 9 HBCUs! This year EACH of the three (3) clusters will award a
- Tier I Grant – $50,000
- Campus Pride Grant – $25,000
- Tier II Grant – $10,000
* The Campus Pride Grants will go to the school in each cluster with the most online votes and social media activity.
The Home Depot’s Retool Your School program is giving away MORE grant MONEY to MORE SCHOOLS for MORE campus IMPROVEMENTS.
