Jubilee Ministry grants

November 2, 2012

Young people are often the prophets among us in demonstrating the very real ways the Episcopal Church can engage in mission in our own contexts. Jubilee Ministry grants are one way these important ministries can find a bit of financial support.

Applications for 2012 Jubilee Ministry grants are now being accepted in two categories: diocesan initiatives and health and nutrition.

Jubilee Ministries are congregations or agencies with connections to the Episcopal Church whose mission work affect the lives of those in need, addressing basic human needs and justice issues. Grants to Jubilee ministries are awarded annually.

Application forms are at  http://www.episcopalchurch.org/page/2012-jubilee-ministry-grants

Funding diocesan initiatives: due December 1; $1,000 grants to support Jubilee Ministry development plans of the local bishop and the appointed diocesan jubilee officer (dioceses can receive one grant).

Health and nutrition: due December 1; $750 grants for Jubilee Ministries that respond to the nutritional needs of people living in “food deserts,” defined as those communities in which residents have no easy access to fresh produce, and must rely on convenience stores or fast-food restaurants to provide their meals.
