Grant Funding for a church/ministry?

I received an email asking about "religion" grants.  While I did send a private reply back the term got me to thinking.  In its broadest, possible sense I would say that there are religious grants however the problem lies with what you want the grant specifically for.  There are grant programs for studying religion, there are grant programs for teaching religion and there are even grant programs for starting a ministry - for example if you want to provide an extension of a ministry then there are those ministries that will provide funding for you to do so.  There is even a category of grant funding if you wanted to receive funding for doing religious art!  What about designing and providing religious jewelery?  What about funding to write a book about religion?  What about funding to help you "spread the word"? 

So I guess that the answer to the question of whether or not there are "religion" grants out there would be a YES!
