GRANT FUNDING FOR MISSIONAL INITIATIVES
As funding allows, CBOQ offers small to medium sized grants to CBOQ member churches wishing to begin or expand outward-focused ministry.
CBOQ grants can help to start and develop local church, church partnership and regional initiatives which articulate a clear pathway towards the self-sustainability of the intended initiative, provide a model for replication in other church settings and which indicate investment (financial or otherwise) from other partners.
Grant Applications are available online or can be sent out by mail in paper form by request. Potential applicants should contact a member of the CBOQ grant team before beginning to fill out the application. Completed applications may be sent by e-mail, fax, or mail. Payments will begin when the initiative starts.
Successful applicants will be required to submit written progress reports every six months. The reports should tell of the progress that has been made towards achieving the goals that have been proposed in this application.
Successful applicants will be required to submit at least one short article for publication by CBOQ every twelve months. The article(s) should be two or three paragraphs long and include photographs where that is possible and appropriate.
Payments will begin when the initiative starts and will continue, normally, for a maximum of two years. Grant renewal are give only where the initiative has demonstrated progress and potential but has not yet become self sustaining.
CBOQ will seek to encourage all of its members to support your ministry in prayer and in other practical ways.
The next deadline for receiving (fully completed) grant applications is April 15, 2015. Applications received after this date will be considered at the Fall Grant Team Meeting. Fall Deadline for applications is October 15, 2015.
