Grants of up to $20,000 to USA nonprofits, municipalities, and government agencies in eligible regions for improvements to public spaces for community benefit. Funding is intended to unite communities through new projects or improve existing public community centers, parks, and play grounds with enhancements for the disabled or safety measures and equipment. Eligible states are those in the continental US.

The HomeServe Cares Foundation (HSCF) grant program is one of many initiatives designed to help communities improve quality of life for their residents. The HSCF grant program is intended to help organizations in communities jump-start a project for residents or to infuse funds into existing programs.

Communities thrive when there are common spaces where residents can gather with family and friends for engagement, fun and recreation. Whether these are parks, play grounds or community centers, the HomeServe Cares Foundation (HSCF) is focusing its next round of grants on projects that support cities, municipalities and organizations that have projects that target these essential public spaces. The emphasis on these projects should be in one or more of the following areas:

  • Upgrades to existing facilities to accommodate residents with disabilities.
  • Refurbishment or replacement of equipment and facilities to ensure the safety of visitors.
  • Improvements to community centers or spaces aimed at inclusion and/or resident engagement.
  • Establishment of new projects aimed at uniting communities through shared spaces.
