Catholic Campaign for Human Development: Community Development Grants
The mission of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is to address the root causes of poverty in the United States through the support of community-controlled, self-help organizations and through transformative education. CCHD's Community Development Grants support organizations that bring poor and vulnerable people together to change structures and policies that perpetuate the cycle of poverty. Priority is given to organizations that work with persons directly experiencing economic or social injustice, such as racial discrimination, long-term joblessness, or economic dislocation. Grants range from $25,000 to $75,000. The Pre-application Eligibility Quiz may be submitted between September 1 and November 1, 2011. (Organizations are strongly encouraged to submit their quiz prior to the November 1 deadline.) Online applications for new applicants are due December 31, 2011. Visit the CCHD website for more information about the Community Development Grants program.
