Grant Opportunity – Deadline Approaching

United Church Homes of NJ is offering a second round of small grants to local UCC congregations to help meet housing needs for developmentally disabled adults. Projects can include retrofitting existing homes to make them more functional for developmentally disabled residents or providing housing wrap-around programs for adults with developmental disabilities, such as recreational activities. In the first round, Grace UCC in Flemington was awarded a grant to make a residence wheelchair-accessible and provide specialized respite services for a member family.
