Hope Fund Grant

Provided by Harbor Freight Tools for Schools and The Hope Fund

SkillsUSA is proud to announce, in partnership with Harbor Freight Tools for Schools and the Hope Fund, a grant opportunity for SkillsUSA members. The Hope Fund was created to support members and chapters in need during times of hardship including natural disaster, financial challenges and most recently economic challenges resulting from the pandemic. The National Leadership and Skills Conference (NLSC) Championships will be conducted in a localized, virtual setting. In most instances, schools or local business will be hosting the competitor. Great efforts have been taken so that materials and supplies are provided by the National Technical Committee. When that is not possible, the local school district and/or local businesses are asked to support the competitor by providing the items. SkillsUSA recognizes that school districts may be experiencing hardships during the pandemic, therefore financial resources have been made available for competitors to receive financial support for competition supplies through the Harbor Freight Tools for Schools and the Hope Fund. SkillsUSA chapters or school districts can apply on behalf of eligible members to receive a grant to offset costs associated with purchasing materials and supplies to be able to participate in the 2021 virtual National Leadership and Skills Conference. Applications will be accepted from April 16 – May 14, 2021. Recipients will be announced June 1, 2021. Refer to the Grant Application for full details including eligibility.
