(For consideration at the September 8 meeting of the Committee)
The Diocesan Fund for Critical Clergy Needs Committee allocates grants to canonically resident priests, deacons or congregations of the Diocese of New York, as follows:
- Medical/dental and other needs:
To assist priests or deacons who have expenses related to severe illnesses or other household crises, lapsed medical insurance premiums, financial emergencies caused by unemployment and unusual medical or dental expenses.
- Educational grants:
- to the children of priests or deacons with special needs or living in critical mission areas where public schooling is clearly inadequate; and
- to aid undergraduate college tuition for children of priests or deacons. Undergraduate education grants, which are only processed during the June meeting each year, have in recent years been in the amount of $2,000 for each student.
