Human Life and Development Fund - Parish Based Organization Grants

In recent years the Human Life and Development Fund granting committee has been developing a new granting process for Parish Based Organizations to apply for a grant from the Human Life and Development Fund without having to go through the general application process. Since Parish Organizations sometimes need funding for a one-time event and receiving these funds on a timely basis, this new application process aims to make it easier. For the Funding Criteria for the Parish Based Organization Grants please download the form here. For the Application Form please download the form here.
