Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $5,000 and in-kind support to USA nonprofit head start programs to educate children and communities about the importance of gardening. In addition to the cash grants, participants will receive gift cards to purchase educational resources, including tools, kits, and curriculum materials.

Through the Gro More Good Garden Grants initiative, NHSA will work with Head Start programs across the country to teach children, families, and communities how to grow their own fresh produce—for life. 

This multi-year initiative will make garden grants, garden kits, educational curriculum, and garden training available to all Head Start programs with the goal of creating more edible gardens for young children and their families.

Hands-on experiences in the garden provide young children with a multitude of life-enhancing benefits, including:

  • Access to healthy food
  • Increased physical activity
  • Reduced risk of obesity
  • Improved behavior
  • Decreased stress and anxiety
  • Positive social integration
  • Improved relationships
  • Greater engagement with learning
  • Better academic performance

Estimated Total Program Funding:

$50,000

Estimated Size of Grant:

Grant awards will vary from $2,500—$5,000. Recipients will also receive a gift card for the purchase of garden curriculum materials, tools and additional gardening resources.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Any Head Start program that is a current NHSA member may apply. Applicants must have the plot of land in their possession at the time of the application with at least a two-year commitment for the garden to be on that property.

Organizations that are not classified as a 501(c)(3) charity generally cannot apply. There are, however, certain organizations that qualify as tax-exempt within the meaning of the Internal Revenue Service code and are eligible to apply without a 501(c)(3) designation. Examples are school districts, universities and government entities. If you are a school-based Head Start program that has not achieved 501(c)(3) status, please use your district’s EIN number.

If your organization has not achieved 501(c)(3) status, a fiscal sponsor who has achieved it is required.

In order to reach the most vulnerable communities, families, and children, once a Head Start program has been awarded a Gro More Good Grant from this Initiative you are no longer eligible to apply.

Pre-Application Information:

The call for applications for the 2020-2021 Garden Grants will be accepted from November 1, 2020, through December 18, 2020.
