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 www.elca.org/domestichungergrants. 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.
