U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Announces New Process for Catholic Campaign for Human Development Grants

Deadline: November 1, 2006 (Eligibility Quiz)

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (<a href=""></a>) has streamlined the pre-application process for its Catholic Campaign for Human Development grants.

CCHD has two grant programs:

1) Community Organizing Grants: In organizing projects, people work together to address the needs of their community. Poor and marginalized people are empowered by joining together to make decisions, seeking solutions to local problems, and finding ways to improve their lives and neighborhoods. These projects assist individuals to develop as community leaders and to mobilize the community’s resources. Community Organizing grants are for $10,000 to $50,000 each.

2) Economic Development Grants: Economic development projects assist poor and low-income people to develop new businesses and create new jobs. Projects provide the potential for low-income people to share greater ownership of assets and participate in decision-making. Economic Development Planning Grants provide up to $10,000 each; Economic Development Implementation Grants provide up to $50,000 each; and Social Investments (Loans) provide $25,000 or $50,000 each.

Organizations pursuing Community Organizing or Economic Development grants that are not currently receiving such support from CCHD may now submit an Eligibility Quiz online. Eligibility quizzes will be accepted between August 1 and November 1, 2006. Organizations are strongly encouraged to submit early.

Complete program criteria and guidelines, eligibility quizzes for the respective programs, as well as instructions for complete application submissions are available on the program’s Web site.
