Area Ministry Grants are granted by the Area Councils. The purpose of the grants are to address four needs:
- enhancing the ministry and mission of congregations in all parts of the Diocese;
- assisting parishes in developing financial self-sufficiency and reducing their need for assistance;
- encouraging parishes to address the root causes of financial shortfalls and, working with the Area Bishop to explore creative alternatives;
- improving the accountability of parishes receiving assistance.
Grants are considered by the Area Bishop and Area Council.
