Global grants available for low-cost shelters and simple schools

Clubs and districts can now use global grants to build low-cost shelters and simple schools, under a recent policy change effective through 2019. The construction must be part of a comprehensive project related to an area of focus. (Projects that involve construction alone are still not eligible for global grants.)

Please note that these structures are limited. Low-cost shelters are intended to provide housing for the poor or homeless. Simple schools provide modest buildings in areas without nearby schools or where current ones are overcrowded. Simple schools can also replace schools that are structurally unsafe. As part of this program, clubs and districts can use global grants to build additional classrooms on school property as long as they are not attached to current structures.

To get started, see the low-cost shelters and simple schools guidelines and application appendixes.
