Funds for Programs, Equipment and Scholarships

A wide variety of agencies grant funds for disability ministries, for uses such as modifying spaces, buying equipment, and starting programs. There are also programs that offer scholarships.

The DMC grant program and other grants that we know of are listed in Funding Resources Available to Local Churches for Accessibility Projects, available in Word or PDF. The Disability Ministries Committee helps fund accessibility and inclusion projects. The annual cycle closes July 1st each year. The DMC is currently revamping its grant process and form.  Please check back in 2021 for an updated grant application.
