The 4th Annual Justmeans Social Innovation Awards are now open for submissions. SIA recognizes companies and organizations that are implementing groundbreaking strategies and programs that drive social and environmental innovation and responsibility. Last year, 40 percent of the Fortune 100 participated in this award program. Applications are being accepted until the end of this month.

The Home Depot Foundation has made the eighth of its weekly grants to nonprofits serving veterans. As part of its “Celebration of Service” initiative, $920,000 was donated to four nonprofits dedicated to addressing the housing needs of U.S. military veterans. Recipients include Help USA, Quest 35, Senior Citizens Services of Metropolitan Atlanta, and Veterans Empowerment Organization of Georgia. The grants will fund repairs and renovation of 200 units of housing and individual homes.
