Funds from the ELCA World Hunger Appeal are set aside annually for Domestic Hunger Grants. In 2012, $865,000 was awarded to projects in one of four areas: advocacy, development, community organizing, and relief.   Seven grants were awarded to projects serving needs within the Southeastern Iowa Synod.

Applications for Domestic Hunger Grants for 2013 are now available online at The deadline for applications is July 9, 2012. Application materials postmarked after the July 9 deadline will not be considered for funding in 2013.

We are grateful for the partnership with the churchwide organization which these grants demonstrate, and for the on-going support congregations and individuals give to the ELCA World Hunger Appeal.

For additional information contact Pastor Paul Ostrem at [email protected]. Any groups or ministries which address poverty should consider applying for a grant. The maximum amount for a grant is $6000. Additional information may also be obtained from the churchwide office, contact number 1-800-638-3522.
