Episcopal Ministries of Long Island provides funding for Episcopal parish-based ministries in Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk as they work to meet the needs of all people in their communities.

If your parish aspires to start a new ministry or strengthen an existing one, you are encouraged to connect with us to discern the best grant program for your needs.

Budget Template

This budget template is a tool for you to inform EMLI how financial resources will be allocated and used purposefully by your ministry. It is available in both Excel and Google Sheets format.
