The Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut

Fire Safety Grant

These grants are available for parishes in good standing that demonstrate an existing need for renovation or construction projects in service to the Mission of God. The grant will award reimbursements to parishes for up to 50% of their payments for renovation or construction projects incurred within the current calendar year, with no award exceeding $3,000.  Grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis for up to six parishes per calendar year.

Please note: The Episcopal Church in Connecticut has a separate grant available for fire safety and suppression upgrades. Parishes are not eligible to receive both grants for the project in the same calendar year. For fire safety projects, please contact Matt Handi to apply for funds prior to submitting a property improvement grant application. 

Grant applications will be accepted on a year-round, rolling basis. Applications will be reviewed by Canon for Mission Finance and Operations. Awards will be processed and parishes notified within 6-8 weeks.
