The Diocese of Pittsburgh's Episcopal Church Women (ECW) will be making outreach grants in the fall.
The ECW particularly seeks to support "hands-on-ministries" that help children, adults and families in need of assistance with food, nutrition, health care, housing, education and counseling.
The grants are primarily designed for ministries within the Diocese and with the goal of even distribution across all districts. It is hoped that these small grants will enable the continuation of existing ministries on the local level.
However, the ECW will continue its policy of also awarding grants to some national and international ministries such as ERD.
