The Fund for the Diaconate of the Episcopal Church has created a special Emergency Grant Program, to aid deacons affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Deacons in good standing in The Episcopal Church, who have been laid off, furloughed, or otherwise had their employment hours cut back or eliminated, are eligible to apply.
Grants will cover the time period of March 1, 2020 – Sept. 30, 2020, with applications being accepted until Oct. 15, 2020. Grants of $525 per month will be made for a three-month time period, with each grant being reviewed monthly. Grants may be renewable, upon the provision of updated documentation. (Only the initial application will be required.)
