Clubs and districts can now use global grants to build low-cost shelters and simple schools, under a recent policy change that will be in effect through 2019. The construction must be part of a comprehensive project related to an area of focus. (Projects that involve construction alone are still not eligible for global grants.)

Please note that these structures are limited. Low-cost shelters are intended to provide housing for the destitute or homeless. Simple schools provide very modest schools in areas that previously had none; they aren’t intended to enhance existing schools. To get started, see the low-cost shelters and simple schools guidelines and application appendix.
