Congregational Development - Operating Grants

Grants are available for time-limited, specific mission and ministry expenses of congregations within the Diocese of Central Pennsylvania.

Of particular interest are mission and ministries that:

• Engage new partners in cooperative efforts (such as other Episcopal parishes, other churches, schools, scouting groups, local businesses, community centers, service organizations, senior centers, nonprofits, municipalities, etc.). 

• Leverage new resources (time, money or expertise) that can be used to help increase your congregation's capacity to be the best it can be.

• Undertake activities that hold promise to make a lasting, significant impact.

Allocations are based on need and funds available in the diocesan budget.
