The Emerging Needs Specialized Ministries Grant provides financial assistance for start up fees to develop new outreach ministries of congregations. The financial assistance is to subsidize financial needs that are beyond the capability of the local church to start a new ministry. The ministry must address specific and well defined needs of people living within the geographic area of the local congregation. This is a one time grant not to exceed $3,000.
Deadline: There are currently no specific deadlines assigned for the application submission. As applications are received, they are reviewed and discussed by the IGRC Specialized Ministries Committee as needed.
