Grant Guidelines and Deadlines



The Autumn deadline for SCHIP grant applications is Saturday, October 15th.


SCHIP (Shelburne, Charlotte, Hinesburg Interfaith Project) has announced its Spring 2022 grant awards.

Recent monies in the amount of $22,000 were awarded to 13 non-profits in our towns that met the criteria ofserving the people of our communities in a variety of ways. The recipients for this cycle included: Hinesburg Community School; Shelburne Craft School; Shelburne Food Shelf; Carpenter-Carse Library; YMCA Camp; Vermont Parks Forever; Hinesburg Artist Series; CVU Home School Fund; Stern Center; Hinesburg Nursery School; JUMP; Common Roots; and Habitat for Humanity.
These awards are made possible as a result of SCHIP’s mission to raise funds through the sale of donated,
gently used clothing, household items, accessories, art, and collectibles at its resale shop in the distinctive yellow building on Route 7, next to the town offices. Since the first grants given in April 2005, more than $801,000 has been distributed.

SCHIP accepts grant applications twice a year. The deadlines are April 15 and October 15. The maximum grant size is $3,000 and only one grant can be received within any one year period by any single party. Application forms are available at the link below.

As a member of our communities, you too are an intimate part of our mission. Come shop, donate, volunteer, and help us continue to meet our objectives for the future.
