There are less than two weeks remaining to apply for a Partners in Health and Wholeness (PHW) Mini-Grant.
Congregations that are members of the PHW Collaborative are able to request up to $1,000 for a mini-grant. Eligible congregations must have been accepted into the PHW Collaborative or renewed their membership in the past 12 months. They also cannot have received a mini-grant in the summer 2017 grant cycle. We encourage churches to ask for a reasonable amount to fulfill their health plans outlined in the mini-grant application.
The mini-grant must be used to support health and wellness activities outlined and approved in your mini-grant application. Mini-grants should be used for projects that engage congregants and fulfill a health need in the church or in the surrounding community. Priority is given to projects that address at least one of PHW’s four cornerstones: healthy eating, physical activity, tobacco prevention and cessation, and mental health. PHW has previously funded initiatives such as exercise classes, supplies for health screenings, starting/expanding a community garden, hosting support groups, health education classes, and purchase of tobacco cessation signs. For answers to additional questions, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page or reach out to the regional coordinator in your area (their contact information can be found here).
