First Steps Grants Application Deadline
Fri, May 31, 2019
The Congregational Development Commission calls for applications for the 2019 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.Click here for the guidelines and application
