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. The application window for 2019-2020 grants is now closed.
Five Core Areas of Funding
- Arts & Music
- Healthy Active Living
- Mental Health
- Media Literacy
The amounts available for disbursement are determined annually.
Schools can receive a grant(s) up to $1,500 for Arts & Music, Physical or Mental Wellness and Media Literacy, and up to $5,000 for Environmental initiatives. *(All environmental applications must follow the School Ground Greening Admin Procedure.)
Important: If a school has received funds from the Eliminating Barriers Fund or other funding areas during the school year this DOES NOT exclude the school from applying for or receiving a grant from this grant process.
