The United Church provides numerous supports to its congregations, camps, education centres, and outreach ministries. Financial programs are designed to help small congregations to get through periods of reduced income or to do renovations and repairs.
In 2011–2014, congregations and other ministries in Ontario are eligible for retrofit grants. Ontario Power Authority Retrofit Program [PDF: 1 p/26 KB] provides additional information. Ministries in other provinces should check with their provincial or local authorities for similar programs.
Mission and Ministry grants are now administered through the Seeds of Hope granting program. Applications are accepted twice a year: spring deadline, March 15; fall deadline, October 15. For more information on the grants available and the application process, see "How to Apply" on The United Church of Canada Foundation site.
