Applications for Cents-Ability grants to fund hunger ministries of or related to congregations in our presbytery are now being received. This year we are requesting that Cents-Grant Application 2019 be submitted electronically if at all possible. Applications may be emailed to [email protected] and are due no later than September 6, 2019.
ELIGIBILITY AND SELECTION CRITERIA
Applications may be submitted by any organization located in New Jersey that is actively seeking to meet the needs of hungry people or addressing issues related to the political, economic, and societal issues that cause hunger. Applications will be considered if they meet the mission statement of the Presbyterian Hunger Program: “To alleviate hunger and eliminate its causes.”
All congregations are encouraged to invite organizations they support to apply for a grant (to be endorsed by the Session).
Organizations not affiliated with a church that is a part of the Presbyterian Church (USA) should ask the session of the Presbyterian congregation in their community to endorse their request.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling, as received basis. In 2019 grants will be awarded in September.
The Presbytery’s Hunger Action Advocate will evaluate all applications as to the quality of the program and the urgency of the need served by the program or ministry. Whenever possible, she will do an on-site visit to the organization applying for funds. She will then make recommendations to the Cents-Ability Grants Committee, which will make the final determination regarding funding.
