The Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut

Property Improvement 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 $8,000. Grant awards depend on availability of restricted funds, and are not guaranteed.  

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 between June 1 and December 31 each year. Grant applications submitted after the deadline will not be considered. A link to the application form can be found on this page after June 1, 2020.

Applications will be reviewed at the first Finance Committee in the new year and approved at the subsequent Leadership Gathering in March. Notification of awards can be expected in early April.
