Do you know if your church is accessible for members or guests who primarily use a wheelchair for mobility? Do you have a church project in mind to make your building more accessible? Or are you looking for ways to help improve your worship space so that all people of all ages and abilities may feel included and loved by God? Then this new grant opportunity through the West Ohio Conference could be right for you and your church. 

The Disability and Ministry Team of the West Ohio Conference, now known as the Ohio Disability and Ministry Collaborative, is thrilled to announce a pilot grant program to fund projects for the improvement of church accessibility in the West Ohio Conference. Churches may receive up to $5,000.

The Ohio Disability and Ministry Collaborative would love to read and learn more about a project your church would like to create to make your space more accessible or inclusive for people with disabilities. You can complete the 2022 Project Pilot Grant Application now! Grants will be accepted, reviewed, and awarded on a rolling basis until November 1, 2022, or until all available funds have been distributed. 

If your church is interested, please complete the grant application. For more information, or questions, please email Sam Rodriguez, Director of Faith Formation and Community Engagement.
