The Lowe’s Foundation has launched Gable Grants
– a commitment to preparing the next generation of skilled tradespeople.
Through the Gable Grants program, the Lowe’s Foundation will provide $50 million over the next five years
to community & technical colleges and community-based nonprofit organizations to help prepare 50,000 people
for skilled trades careers. This annual and national grant program will provide grantees with funding for two years, helping develop a community of skilled tradespeople to build and revitalize our homes, neighborhoods and infrastructure for the future.
Lowe’s is currently accepting unrestricted grant applications from community & technical colleges through April 10. They are looking for community & technical colleges from around the country with innovative skilled trades programs that are working to increase the number of young and diverse people in the workforce, especially from underrepresented and rural communities.
