The applications for HCLTech Grant in the Americas Program 2023 is now open. Nearly a decade ago, HCLTech Grant was launched by the HCLFoundation to enable cross-sector collaboration and empower non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to play a decisive role in building a stronger, future-ready India.
Today, HCLTech Grant has invested nearly $16 million in groundbreaking projects and is recognized as one of the largest grant programs in India—impacting over 27,000 villages across 22 states.
HCLTech will be granting $5 million over five years to impact-focused, Americas-based not-for-profit organizations to supercharge their replicable, scalable and sustainable projects focused on climate action. Three organizations will be selected each year—first place will receive $500,000 and two runners-up will receive $250,000 each for a one-year project.
