TOLEDO – Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Toledo is accepting applications for two types of local grants — Community Development and Economic Development grants — made available through funding from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) annual collection.
Local CCHD grant applications for up to $15,000 are available to 501c3 non-profit organizations that demonstrate grass-roots efforts to break the cycle of poverty by empowering the poor within the 19-county Diocese of Toledo.
Established in 1970, CCHD is the domestic anti-poverty program of the U.S. Catholic Bishops and is funded by an annual national collection in parishes. Applicants do not need to be affiliated with the Catholic Church but must be in compliance with Catholic moral and social teachings.
Local grant applications are due March 20. To obtain an application or for more information, please visit www.catholiccharitiesnwo.org or contact Social Ministry Program Coordinator Germaine Kirk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 419-244-6711, ext. 225.
