Thank you for supporting ECSU with your votes during the public voting phase of the Home Depot Retool Your School grant program, which was created by Home Depot to provide funds for Historically Black Colleges and Universities to make eco-friendly campus improvements. Grant winners will be announced on June 15, 2010. 

Home Depot will award one $50,000 major grant to an HBCU and award 10 HBCUs with $10,000 minor grants. ECSU is one of 62 HBCUs competing to receive a major or minor grant award. All grant applications are being judged based on their written proposals and budgets to create inspiring campus improvement projects using the grant funds.  Voting was a portion of the final score each grant application will receive during the final review process.

ECSU applied for $50,000 to build a new baseball field and $10,000 to install sustainable landscaping.  We are excited to have the opportunity to compete for the Retool Your School grant awards, and we await Home Depot's June 15th announcement of the grant winners.
