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. HDSB staff may access the 2018-2019 Grant Application here.  

Five Core Areas of Funding

  • Arts & Music
  • Healthy Active Living
  • Media Literacy
  • 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 is the maximum for 2018-2019.

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.
