CCHD National Grant Pre-Application Is Now Open!

Pre-Application for new grant applicants for the 2016-2017 National CCHD Grant Program is Now Open! 

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development is the national anti-poverty program of the U.S. Catholic Bishops. CCHD works to break the cycle of poverty by helping low-income people participate in decisions that affect their lives, families, and communities. Currently, there are two grant programs: community development and economic development. For more information on these programs, including a comprehensive guide on how to complete the application, click here.

CCHD grants involve a multi-step review process, the first of which is the pre-application. All new grant applicants must submit a pre-application for a community development or an economic development grant. CCHD uses this pre-application to determine the funding eligibility of a potential applicant organization. Approved organizations will be invited to apply for the full grant, which is due December 15th.
