Each year the California-Pacific Conference DisAbility Ministries Task Force offers grants to congregations and other United Methodist entities that want to improve the accessibility of their facilities and/or the inclusiveness of their programs.
These grants are typically $500-1000 and support the fundraising efforts of congregations who are wanting to improve the ADA compliance of their facilities and/or begin a new program that is inclusive of people with disabilities.
Previous accessibility grants have been used for ramps, electronic doors, bathroom improvements, handrails to the chancel, and more. Program grants can be used for sensory rooms, beginning a respite care program, holding educational events, etc.
These grants are not intended to cover the entire cost of all projects; they are intended to be a seed money grant for congregations to improve their accessibility and/or inclusiveness for people with disabilities.
Application deadline is September 15, 2022.
