Every year the Halton Learning Foundation provides Engagement Grants to a number of HDSB schools.

Grant applications are reviewed by a committee comprised of principals from both elementary and secondary panels, Foundation staff and Foundation Board Members. Apply for 2017-2018 grants here.

Five Core Areas of Funding

  • Arts & Music
  • Healthy Active Living
  • Technology
  • Environment
  • Mental Health

The amounts available for disbursement are determined annually.

Schools can receive a grant(s) up to a maximum amount which is set at the time of the Call for Grant applications.  $1,500 per school is the typical maximum.

Important: If a school has received funds from the Eliminating Barriers Fund or other funding areas during the school year this DOES NOT eliminate the school from applying for, or receiving a grant from this grant process. Funding comes from separate funds.
