Resourcing the Local Church

Resourcing the Local Church Grants provide funding to churches and individuals within the Maine Conference of the United Church of Christ (UCC). This is includes grants for churches, grants for individuals, and scholarships for Members in Discernment (MiD).


Frequently Asked Questions

Why are there two different RLC Grant Applications?

The majority of the applications come from congregations who are seeking to make capital improvements, start a new program, or underwrite an existing program. Requests from individuals are frequently related to training or other educational opportunities. Church projects and individual projects often have a different focus, therefore require different application forms.

Will the applicant have any interaction with members of the Resourcing the Local Church Committee?

Yes, a member of the committee will contact you directly and ask for additional information. If possible a committee member may do a site visit in an effort to gain a better understanding of a project.

May a church or individual apply for more than one RLC Grant in a given year?

No, an applicant can only apply one time in a calendar year.

Why doesn’t every applicant receive the same amount?

Disbursements are dependent upon the number of requests the RLC Committee receives in a given quarter and the scope of the project.
