The funds from the Diocese of Massachusetts COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund are to be distributed towards these three areas:
- Ensuring salaried and hourly staff members and their benefits are paid.
- Assisting at-risk households within the community and the congregation.
- Assisting congregations with payment of building expenses, such as utilities.
Grant applications will be considered for up to $5,000. Applications will be considered on the 1st and 15th day of each month.
