January Webinars: There will be two webinars on January 14 at noon and 8 pm Eastern Time and will cover both UTO grant processes. Join us online: https://zoom.us/j/8140408194.

If you cannot attend the webinar, please email your questions to hmelton@episcopalchurch.org and she will send you an answer from the webinar. 

Staff Assistance for the Annual Grant Process: Our Staff is here to help all applicants. With that said, there are limits to the amount of help that they are allowed to provide. They will only review or respond to five (5) inquiries or drafts per applicant and only the questions you have asked. Staff can review draft applications between December 1 and February 1. From February 1 until February 21, staff will only review budgets to ensure items are complete and within criteria. From February 21 until the 28, staff will only review applications to ensure they are complete. The final week before the deadline there will be no assistance offered nor will additions or changes to your application be accepted once it is submitted. We highly recommend that you ask for help early, especially with Companion Applications which require multiple signatures.
