2022 MIV Grant Applications Now Available!

This year, the MIV has two different grants available!

  1. Mission Site/Partner Grant - organizational level grant
  2. Ministry Project Grant - project level grant

There are separate applications for each grant.

As a district, we are embracing the symbolism of a bridge and challenging ourselves to build bridges to those who need the love, grace, mercy, and justice of Jesus Christ. We want to hear how you see God guiding you into creative ways of reaching out in ministry and attracting others to follow Jesus Christ. As Jesus went about his work, he built bridges to those he encountered, meeting their countless needs and inviting them into a closer relationship with God. This is our vision for how the Church needs to work today.

Attached you will find the application for receiving grant resources from the Miami Valley District.   Included, for each application, a page that outlines the entire process for 2022 grants. Please open the document in Microsoft Word and answer the questions in the boxes provided (the boxes expand as you type).

Funding for Mission Site Grants and Project Grants will be awarded for a single calendar year; so this application is for the request of support for 2022. Funding is enabled by the generosity of local churches through paying their district apportionments.

The process involves continuous quality assessment to maximize our financial resources, so those receiving Project Grant Funds are required to submit progress reports twice each year (due April 1 and August 1).  Those receiving Mission Site Grant Funds are required to submit a progress report mid-year (due June 1).

We look forward to seeing the creative ideas that emerge as we begin this process again. We thank you for your faithful ministry and for your commitment to partnering with the Miami Valley District and the local United Methodist churches in the eight counties we serve. All grant requests must be received by October 1, 2021.

Please send applications to the Miami Valley District office at miamivalley [at] wocumc.org.
