In a recent survey, the First Church community chose four funding priorities for grants that are administered by the Ministry of Justice & Service (AKA Ministry of Outreach, Mission & Service). Out of a list of eight choices, these received the highest support: Immigration, Environment, Food Insecurity/Hunger and Housing.
The Ministry has prepared a Request for Proposals (RFP) that it will be sharing widely that includes funding guidelines and an application process. Proposals are due by October 20, 2017.
First Church members who know of organizations that are working in these areas may share the RFP and/or encourage groups to apply.
