Small Program Grants Available to Congregations and Diocesan Ministries

Each year, our Diocesan Council offers Social Service Ministries grants. These small grants, which average between $500-$3,000, assist congregations and agencies in our diocese who support those in their communities most in need of help and hope.  In recent years, grants have been awarded primarily to programs that support the community with basic needs of food, clothing, housing, medical care and education for children.  In 2021, we were able to support the programs of twenty two diocesan agencies and congregations, spanning the geography of our entire diocese!

Applications are due no later than April 15, 2022. Download the Application

Average grants awarded are between $300 – $1,500, based on the length of the program and number of children impacted.
