Any mission, parish, monastic community or institution serving the Orthodox jurisdictions determined as canonical by the Assembly of Canonical Bishops of the United States of America and/or its successor interested in applying for funding through OCCIF should visit the Application Process section of the website.
This section of our site is designed to equip you with an understanding of how OCCIF works, and describes our process and requirements for our participation. We are committed to the idea that each application received will be considered on its own merit, and not forced to fit a mold prescribed by artificial standards. As each project yields a unique solution, so should the ability to think creatively about its funding.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
