Metro Ministries offers two grant cycles annually, the Spring Cycle and the Fall Cycle. The Spring Grant cycle begins in the late fall, and grants are awarded in the spring. These grants are open to United Methodist Churches and non-profit organizations located in the Central District of the Indiana Conference.Fall Cycle grants are open ONLY to United Methodist Churches in the Central District and are awarded late summer/early fall.
Metro Ministries Inc.’s 2023 Fall Grant Cycle is focused on church and school collaboration regarding violence prevention.
Churches are invited to consider project proposal submissions that are directly and intentionally focused on one or more areas related to violence awareness and/or prevention.
Churches are not only encouraged, but are expected to work with one or more schools in their respective communities, to identify how the church may be most helpful to the school(s) in addressing violence.
In addition to aligning with one or more of the above focus areas, submissions must meet all Grant Criteria and Grant Requirements included in the Request for Proposal (RFP).
This cycle’s Grant Application is an online form that should be completed and submitted via a web browser.
Final submissions must be received by September 1, 2023 at 11:59 pm.
The amounts of individual grant awards are dependent on the number and quality of grant submissions but will be in the range of $1,000 – $5,000, with the potential for one submission to be awarded beyond this range.
