Wheat Ridge Ministries is inviting congregations to submit applications from Sept. 1 through Oct. 31 for its “Congregation Health and Hope Grant” program.
The grants are intended to help congregations develop health and wellness ministries. All Lutheran congregations — individually or in partnership with other congregations — are eligible for the grants.
The maximum amount per grant is $2,000 for a single congregation, and $6,000 for collaborative efforts involving two or more congregations. The amount of the grant must be matched by the congregation.
Approximately 25 grants will be awarded in November for projects that support and promote the health and well-being of people in the congregation and local community.
Grant funds may be used for health-related events and leadership development; staff training; planning; materials, resources or equipment directly related to program development; and contract services or new staff essential for program development.
To apply for a Congregation Health and Hope Grant, visit the Wheat Ridge Web site at www.wheatridge.org or call (800) 762-6748.
