Area ministry grants are granted by the Area Councils. They address four needs:
- enhancing the ministry and mission of congregations in all parts of the Diocese
- helping parishes develop 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.
