Estimated Size of Grant:

The winning applicant will get the opportunity to have a space of their choosing renovated in a project valued up to $50,000.

Term of Contract:

The planning/fundraising period will run through October 2019, and volunteer days/contractors on-site in November 2019.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Organizations must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that owns a space within the Houston city limits.

At this time, HIP does not do jobs that require permits with the City of Houston. During the renovation process, if major damage is found in the space (water/termite/mold/fire/wear and tear, etc.), it is the responsibility of the nonprofit to investigate and repair these areas.

This project cannot include kitchens, bathrooms, swimming pools, animal facilities and outdoor sports facilities. This also cannot be a rebuild of a completely or nearly demolished space or an empty or abandoned lot or building. Proposals requesting these facilities will automatically be disqualified.

Pre-Application Information:

Proposal and required attachments are due by April 30, 2019. The Partner will be selected in May 2019.
