Episcopal Community Services

Episcopal Community Services (ECS) administers Ministry Development grants for new efforts focused on human rights advocacy, human service or health programs, or lay leadership/empowerment programs. In addition, it awards the Warren Dunning Memorial Grant, a 3-year commitment encouraging a congregation to implement a ministry and then develop a plan to sustain the grant’s activity, with their own funding sources, beyond the life of the grant. Finally, it administers the Anita Weaver Grant, a $15,000 grant for one year to help persons (ages 50 and older) to move from homelessness to supportive housing with a plan leading to a long-term solution.
