Neighbors in Need Grant Recipients

Through your generous gifts to Neighbors In Need, the United Church of Christ is offering hope to millions of people; we are transforming lives, the nation, and our world. These grants support work for human and civil rights, environmental justice and/or economic justice in one of the following ways:

  • Direct Service ($1,000 – $3,000) – provides funding to meet the immediate needs of an individual or group (i.e. food, clothing, utilities).
  • Advocacy ($3,001 – $5,000) – offers funding to assist communities who wish to change policy on a state or federal level via an advocacy campaign.
  • Grass Top ($5,001 – $10,000) – is a highly competitive tier which seeks to award uniquely innovative programs which can be replicated in other settings.
