Please contact the Grants Program Office to inquire about the home improvement grant program.
What’s a home improvement grant?
A home improvement grant is an offer of money for home renovation or other renovations of your home. Grants are available to individuals, families and groups. Grant amounts vary by state. For more information, visit http://www.homeschools.gov/help-funding-schools/home-improvement-grant/ and select Homeschools and Homeschoolers.
How can I apply for a grant?
Applicants are required to mail in and return application forms and must submit an application fee (typically $50). Click the link on the top of the form to view the application forms. There may be a $5.00 processing fee if there is no application submitted.
Can I apply for grant money more than once?
No. Apply for funds as often as you can, including holidays and weekends as needed.
How often do I need to submit my application?
You must submit applications on a quarterly basis. Applications may be submitted at any time up until 12 months of grant funding.
Do I need to pay taxes on or receive tax credit money in order to apply for a grant?
No! Home improvement grant funding is tax credit money. You may get a tax credit and you are not required to pay any federal or state taxes on it. If your home is valued as a qualified low-income housing development, you may be eligible for tax credits. More information about tax credits is available by visiting http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/FTA-20150830.pdf.
How do I decide if something is an improvement?
Improvements are classified into different categories by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). For more information, go to http://www.homeschools.gov/help-funding-schools/home-improvement-grant/.
Is my application reviewed?
No, the state grants board does not review your applications. However, if your application is not made in the most timely manner possible, your applications do not get reviewed.
What if I still need to send in my application?
You can still mail in your application form and send to:
