The Presbytery of San Francisco understands that COVID-19 continues to dictate how we must manage our lives. As our Presbytery continues to hope and pray to get to the other side of this, we are also aware of the pandemic’s financial impact on our churches and congregants. Given this, PSF has opened a second round of COVID grant aid that was first made available in April. We hope that this will be helpful in the months ahead.
COVID Benevolence Grants (for congregant’s immediate needs)
Each Congregation and each NWC is eligible to apply for a first-time Covid Benevolence Grant of up to $2k. This is in addition to the $1k or $2k grants made in April which were not solicited by the churches.
Each Congregation and each NWC who has already received a Covid Benevolence Grant is eligible to apply for a second benevolence grant. Congregations may apply for up to $2k more, and NWC’s can apply for up to $1k more.
COVID Emergency Assistance Grants (needs based)
Each Congregation and each NWC who has not yet applied for a needs-based Covid Assistance Grant, up to $10k, is still eligible to do so. Please use the grant application on the Presbytery of San Francisco website. These grants are in addition to the Benevolence Grants and in addition to the $5k grants made in April which were not solicited by the churches.
Each Congregation who has already received a needs-based Covid Assistance Grant of up to $10k is eligible to apply for a second Covid Assistance Grant of up to $10k. Please fill out the grant application again, provide monthly financials since the last time your church applied until the present
