As The United Church of Canada lives into a difficult financial reality, cuts have been made, including to the amount made available to Regional Councils for Mission Support Grants. As you prepare your application, the Commission asks that you prayerfully consider tailoring your request to reflect that the Regional Council has fewer resources than at this time last year.

Completed application packages can be sent to Kathy Douglas at KDouglas@united-church.ca

Upon receiving your email, Kathy will let you know she has your application. If you have not heard from Kathy within 3 working days, please be in touch with her to ensure she received your email.
