Funded by a portion of funds raised through the Sowing Seeds for our Holy Work Annual Campaign, Innovative Program Awards support ACPE members and/or centers in the achievement of ACPE’s Strategic Initiatives. Specifically, these innovative projects allow ACPE to develop new and experimental programs extending CPE into atypical settings, test and disseminate new pastoral/spiritual care theology and education, and/or develop new research concepts and methodologies.
In 2019, applicants are invited to submit a Letter of Inquiry to fund all or significant parts of innovative projects that expand access to CPE and that do not exceed $18,000. The most compelling projects will be invited to submit a full proposal. The deadline to submit LOIs is June 15, 2019.
