Action Support Ministries Grant Application 2020

Grant Guidelines – Deadline is Wednesday, April 10, 2019

The purpose of the Action Support Ministries of the Capital District Board of Missions is the facilitation of outreach ministries to relieve human suffering and the establishment of new and creative forms of such outreach within the district.

ASM gives priority funding to programs that address this purpose. The committee gives priority to:

  • Ministries tied directly to United Methodist churches in the Capital District or to initiatives of the District itself
  • Ministries that address a critical and/or unique need in their mission field
  • New and expanding ministries or established ministries that are actively seeking outside community and funding partners, but have few large donor or governmental grant options
  • Ministries that demonstrate substantial buy-in from their local congregations (as appropriate), including funding, volunteer, advisory and administrative support
  • Funding for program costs over staff and administrative costs
All applicants should be prepared to meet with the Action Support Committee for a short 15-20 minute interview on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at Northwest Hills UMC, 7050 Village Center Dr. The interview schedule will be emailed to you on or about Monday, April 15, 2019.
