Diocese Grants and Loans

The Diocese of Central Pennsylvania has several financial resources available to assist congregations within the Diocese. Funding sources include support for various forms of mission and ministry as well as operational and capital support.

The Diocese provides over $200,000 in grants, scholarships, and loans annually. While we would like to be able to meet every request, requests typically exceed available resources. There are several factors considered in the review process including a parish’s financial resources, clarity of purpose, and level of impact.

All parishes seeking grants and/or loans must complete the Diocesan Grant/Loan application. For grants without a specific due date, applications are reviewed in the order they are received. For additional information or to request an application, please contact Chad Linder, Canon for Finance and Administration, at (717) 236-5959 ext. 1107, (717) 968-5550, or via email at clinder@diocesecpa.org.
