VOTE for JSU in the Home Depot Retool Your School Program

Please go and vote for Jackson State University to win up to $50,000 from the Home Depot Retool Your School Program.

This year, Home Depot has expanded the program. They are introducing a new $25,000 Campus Pride Grant for the school that shows the most initiative in promoting their proposals and garnering votes. They are also providing an additional $10,000 Tier II Grant. In all, they’ve increased the total grant funds available to $185,000.

Last year, they awarded grants totaling $150,000 to HBCUs. A $50,000 Tier I Grant went to Bethune-Cookman University to help upgrade their Student Center with wheelchair ramps and barrier-free automatic access doors in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Ten additional schools received $10,000 each for a variety of projects, from landscaping to lighting to irrigation.
