Apply for Aid < Emergency Grants
The Emergency Grants Program evolved from the COVID-19 Emergency Grants Program initiated in April 2020. Any Episcopal deacon who is in good standing with their diocese and who has sustained a financial loss that limits their ministry is eligible to apply to the Fund for an Emergency Grant.
The Emergency Grants program can provide up to $5,000 to assist with consequential financial losses. In addition to income loss due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, other examples are: loss of housing or income due to a Federal-or State-declared emergency; loss due to fire or other emergency, need for immediate repairs to the deacon’s primary dwelling or vehicle.
Additional information is available in the FAQs.
