New Initiative Grants 

Dreaming about a new ministry in your community? New Initiative Fund grants from Diocesan Council are available to support your call to mission!  Each congregation, diocesan committee, or program group in the Diocese of Maine is eligible to apply for funding to support new ministries, expand existing ministries in new directions, or to discern ministry possibilities in their community.  

Diocesan Council will evaluate grant applications on a rolling basis.

Your completed application form, project budget and any other attachments may be sent to Cn. Barbara Martin. Additional instructions may be found on the application form. (For a Word version of the application, click here.) 

Once submitted, your application will be evaluated based on how closely it meets the Seven Criteria for Mission, and you will be contacted by a member of the Diocesan Council Grants Subcommittee, who will serve as your liaison through the application process and advocate for your application at the Diocesan Council meeting.  

Questions? Please contact Cn. Barbara Martin

Grants Subcommittee: Ms. Rita Redfield; Rev. Suzanne Roberts; Mr. Fred Fowler; Staff: Cn. Barbara Martin
