Urban Commission

Urban Alliance / Urban Church Initiative Grant Application

Fall 2021 Application Deadline: November 15, 2021

The Urban Commission of the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference will award grants to assist in funding Urban Alliances or Urban Church Initiatives. United Methodist churches of the Eastern PA Conference are encouraged to apply. The Urban Commission hopes to offer grants twice a year – May 31 and November 15.

Alliances and Initiatives who receive funding are eligible to apply for additional funding once every 12 months (not in the cycle in between). In order to receive additional funding, ministry evaluations must show responsible use of funds, accomplishment or significant progress toward goals, and alignment with EPA Conference Mission. Anytime a grant is not awarded, Alliances and Initiatives are encouraged to strengthen the application and re-apply in future cycles.

Complete applications should be sent to:

Rev. Dawn Taylor Storm, Director of Connectional Ministries
