Some types of grants that provide assistance for churches include denominational grants and government grants. Individuals may also look into private grants and Emergency Food and Shelter Programs, which cover religious organizations.
Many denominational grants are designed to provide assistance for specific projects, and some aim to provide organizations with the assistance necessary to get projects started. Independent churches that are not parts of larger denominations may not receive such grants. Private grants are funds provided by individuals, businesses and organizations that have interest in certain projects. While rare, they are highly versatile and compatible with practically all types of churches.
