If you will be using Purchase Orders, please complete the U.S. Communities Home Depot Account form.

Who can participate?
States, State Agencies, Counties, Cities, Schools, Colleges and Universities, Non-Profits and Special Districts.

My state requires local governments to bid everything. Can local governments in my state use this program without going out to bid?
Yes. This contract has been competitively bid by a government agency. Through the Joint Powers Authority or an inter-local agreement, local governments can "piggy-back" this competitively bid contract through U.S. Communities. This satisfies the competitive bid requirements in most states. See state by state laws on intergovernmental purchasing.

What does a government agency need to do in order to participate?
Complete the free online registration found on the U.S. Communities website. Then enroll with Home Depot by going to www.homedepot.com/proloyalty follow the steps outlined in the enrollment process overview or in the Home Depot Enrollment Guide.

Please be sure to complete all steps in the registration process with Home Depot, including registration of payment types, to receive your rebate.

Is there a fee associated with joining U.S. Communities?
No, there are no costs or user fees to the local agency to participate or register.

If my agency already has an account with Home Depot, do I need to set up a new account?
No. Contact your Home Depot Account Representative at USCommunitiesregistrations@homedepot.com to have the U.S. Communities program linked to your existing account.

Does the competitive pricing apply, regardless of quantity?
Using Home Depot and the U.S. Communities program assures an agency they are getting a very competitive price on any size order. There are no costs, minimum quantity requirements or spend limits associated with using the Home Depot U.S. Communities program.

Does the U.S. Communities contract allow me to procure Labor and Services?
Yes. Home Depot Installation Services and Renovation Services are part of the contract.

How does it save time and money?
The key value for the agency is resource savings. On average, U.S. Communities participating agencies will save 5% over traditional procurement practices. Most agencies today are spread too thin. Agencies are downsizing administrative departments, and retiring or departing purchasing and maintenance positions are left unfilled. The U.S. Communities program provides a mechanism to save the time and costs associated with obtaining quotes or preparing bids. The time savings allow the department to accomplish its work tasks more efficiently with the personnel on hand.

How can my agency participate in the U.S. Communities program?
Complete the online registration.

Can more than one person at my agency register?
Yes, additional users can register by completing the standard registration process; the system will automatically unify all registrations that use the same TIN under one agency account. Alternately, existing users can add new users from within their account.
