First and Next Steps Grants
Application Deadline: Friday, May 31
The Congregational Development Commission calls for applications for the 2018 First Steps Grants.
First Steps Grants
First Steps Grants are small grants of up to $2,500 each that are awarded to Episcopal churches in the diocese. The sole purpose of First Steps Grants is to grow the Episcopal Diocese of New York by creating stronger and healthier parishes. A total of $10,000 is available from the diocesan budget for this program. Funds awarded under this program are to support projects for which applicants can articulate how they will result in spiritual and numerical growth, and have the potential to be replicated at other parishes in the diocese. First Steps Grants are not intended for on-going operating expenses, benevolence, or capital improvements.
Next Steps Grants
Next Steps Grants are not available due to the cuts required by the 2018 Diocesan Budget.
