The primary purpose of the Unitarian Universalist (UUA) first home grant program is to facilitate the continued growth of congregations seeking to purchase their first piece of land and/or building or to construct its first spiritual home.
It is possible for a congregation to receive two first home grants. For example, a congregation may conduct a capital campaign to purchase a piece of land. Assuming that the congregation meets the criteria below, they would receive a grant. If the same congregation conducts a second capital campaign to raise money to construct a building, the congregation could receive a second grant.
A congregation may qualify for a grant equal to ten percent of financial commitments made to a capital campaign. The grant will be paid in its entirety upon approval. There is a $25,000 maximum limit to any grant.
First home grants are made available to Unitarian Universalist congregations as a result of generous grants from the Unitarian Universalist Veatch Program at Shelter Rock and gifts from individual donors. The Veatch Program promotes the growth of UU congregations through its support of this program. Please join us in expressing gratitude to them for their commitment and generosity. Please acknowledge them wherever appropriate in all printed materials.

This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations.
