Urban Commission

Urban Alliance / Urban Church Initiative Grant Application
  • Spring Grants Deadline: May 31
  • Fall Grants Deadline: November 15

The Urban Commission of the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference will award grants to assist in funding Urban Alliances or Urban Church Initiatives.

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.

Please keep in mind that grant funds may not be used to pay salaries or for any existing building expenses, maintenance or repairs, including those caused by natural calamities.

Complete applications should be sent to:

Rev. Dawn Taylor Storm, Director of Connectional Ministries
