2019 Partner in Health and Wholeness Collaborative Application

Attention: Changes to the PHW Applications

In order to make the application process more efficient, we have updated our applications. You will no longer be able to save and come back to the application. We highly recommend you save your answers on a separate document as you fill out the application so that you do not lose your responses if the application closes for any reason. We also recommend you print this document to prepare your responses BEFORE entering them on this form. Thank you so much for your cooperation!

Please read all instructions and requirements before proceeding to the application.

If you need assistance completing the form, please don't hesitate to contact your regional coordinator or the PHW Program Associate, Michelle Peedin, at PHWinfo@ncchurches.org.

Please note, due to a high volume of application, our current mini-grant cycle has been extended through Aug 30. Once you are approved for the PHW Collaborative you will be eligible to apply for a mini-grant within the following 12 months. Please complete the PHW Collaborative at least 2 weeks before submitting a PHW Mini-Grant application in order for us to have time to review.

Application Guidelines

When filling out the application, please type every name out fully with no abbreviations including congregation names, health lead names, and faith leader names. This will ensure your application gets added properly to your account. We also ask you please give us as much detail as possible. The more information we have, the easier it is for us to understand all the wonderful things your health ministry is doing.
