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. Grant applications for each school year open in November.
Five Core Areas of Funding
- Arts & Music
- Healthy Active Living
- 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.
