Possible Grant Funding
In some cases your church may be able to access grants to help you set up Intentional Health in your community. We are not endorsing these grants, and have no influence as to how successful you will be, but are committed to make you aware of any we think might be able to help, and will help provide you with information necessary for you to apply where possible.
