In 2012, the Executive Committee decided to shift from funding named networks to offering grants to Province I members for mission-oriented projects or programs. In addition to supporting established groups at the level they truly needed, the hope was to help launch initiative by emerging communities of practice with members in two or more dioceses. Forty-six grants ranging from $500 to $2,500 have been awarded since the grant program was established.  Current grants are available up to $2000.


Proposals are accepted throughout the year until funds are exhausted and are reviewed during the monthly Executive Committee Meeting, usually the second Thursday of the month. We anticipate that most projects/programs will occur within the fiscal year, though multi-year efforts will be accepted with assumption that the grant could be renewed or extended into another fiscal year.  Applications are reviewed for clarity of mission, comprehensiveness of plan, stewardship of resources, development of sustainable networks for future collaboration, and likelihood of success. To apply, download the application in Word (.docx). Then, email your completed file to the Province 1 Executive Director.


The Executive Committee is now accepting grant applications from Province I members for mission-oriented projects or programs. Grants of $500-$2,000 are available for collaborative projects/programs that involve two or more Province I dioceses. Proposals are accepted throughout the year until funds are exhausted.
