The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is the domestic anti-poverty, social justice program of the U.S. Catholic bishops. Its mission is to address the root causes of poverty in the United States through promotion and support of community-controlled, self-help organizations and through transformative education.
CCHD is committed to supporting groups of low-income individuals as they work to break the cycle of poverty and improve their communities.
CCHD funds the following categories of projects:
Community Development Grants
This program is focused on supporting efforts that demonstrate a commitment to the dignity of the human person. CCHD-funded groups should be led by people living in poverty and work to address the root causes of poverty by nurturing solidarity between the poor and non-poor and facilitating the participation of people living in poverty in decisions that perpetuate poverty in their lives. These grants range between $25,000 and $75,000.
Economic Development Grants
This program is focused on Economic Development Institutions (EDIs). EDIs typically are community-based organizations and businesses. They create good jobs and just workplaces, and they develop assets for low-income people that are owned by families and communities. All EDIs supported by CCHD have structures that promote low-income leadership and ownership. These grants range between $25,000 and $75,000.
