Summary: Applications from child hunger programs are encouraged. Support is provided for general relief, with a focus on access to food, shelter, clothing, medical supplies and care to meet basic human needs. Funded projects should have, whenever possible, some formal or informal connection with the ELCA. However, the ELCA connection is not mandatory, officials tell us. Last year, this program allocated a total of $691,810 to support 347 domestic projects and programs ranging from congregational food pantries to urban farms, job training and living-wage advocacy campaigns.
