In recognition that the cost of utilities is projected to increase by as much as 27.5% per the U.S.Dept. of Energy, the Board of Trustees are extending a one-time grant for ½ of the projected increase, up to $3,000 per congregation.
For calculation purposes:
Take your total cost of utilities for 2022 [or the last 12 months] and multiply that number by 27.5%. This is your estimated increase for the coming year. The presbytery grant would cover up to half of that increase (13.75%) up to $3,000.
We also encourage congregations to make every effort to be as energy efficient as possible. Because funds are limited, the grant is available on a first come, first served basis and is a needs-based grant.
