Eligibility for mini-grant funds are based on the following requirements:
1. Your church must have applied or re-applied and been accepted into the PHW Collaborative (previously Certification Program) in the last 12 months prior to applying for a PHW mini-grant. If you are unsure when the last PHW Collaborative application was submitted from your congregation, email our Program Associate at PHWinfo@ncchurches.org
2. Your church cannot have received a PHW mini-grant in the last 6 months.
Note: In other words, a new Collaborative application must be submitted and approved before each mini-grant application
3. The mini-grant must be used to support your congregation’s health ministry.
4. Ten percent (10%) of the money awarded may be given to your health lead to use at their discretion towards the health ministry.
