Each application should include the following specific information on each program proposed for funding. Please supply all the information requested under each heading:
Describe the program briefly, touching on its goals, general structure, staffing, and actual or projected operation. The description of the proposal should be concise but complete. If the program in question is complex, please explain each major component. Photos of program in action are welcome (please include name(s), date, location, explanation of photos).
Indicate as precisely as possible how the program falls within the description of "home mission activity" given in the Guidelines for Funding. It is extremely important that the applicant make a persuasive case, especially if the home mission nature of the program is not immediately clear. Please note that the guidelines cover different classes of activity, such as proclamation of the Word, pastoral services, personnel training, and the formation of faith communities.
The Subcommittee wishes to serve where the need is greatest. Applicants should explain the urgency of their program in light of the whole mission of the Church.
Need for Outside Funding
Frequently, grant proposals are disapproved because the applicant fails to show convincingly that outside funding is needed.
Please complete attached sheet.
Applicants should detail their financial plans for the future. They should specify the amounts they expect to request of the Subcommittee, the number of years they expect to renew their request, and the sources of revenue they expect to draw on when their relationship with the Subcommittee ends.
