When parishes within our diocese close, their assets revert to the Diocese of Central New York. In an effort to keep some of the resources from closed parishes close to their geographic origin, the Diocesan Board offers “Legacy Grants” to fund ministries and initiatives funded by the resources from these closed parishes. We will receive grant applications from districts, parishes, regions, or groups of parishes. Successful applications will reflect creativity, faithfulness, and collaboration whenever possible.
Note: This grant program is currently available only to the Utica/Rome and Binghamton districts.
