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. Please note: engagement funds are not being offered in the 2020-2021 school year. 

Five Core Areas of Funding

  • Arts & Music
  • Healthy Active Living
  • Mental Health
  • Media Literacy
  • Environment*

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.
