Teacher Grant

Hendricks County Homemakers are aware that many times teachers must sacrifice and use their own resources and funds to supplement their classrooms. We have decided to help by offering a $100 grant to qualified applicants in Hendricks County.

All applicants must be submitted by the 15th of each month and will be awarded at the discretion of the grant committee.

Applications can be mailed to:
HCEH Grant Committee

Applications can also be submitted electronically to clpearson@purdue.edu.
