CCHD Local Grant Application Open. Apply Today

In 2015, 43.1 million Americans lived at or below the poverty line. With many families living one paycheck away from financial instability, there is little hope that more Americans won’t face poverty in the years to come.

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) funds programs in communities across the United States where people living in poverty join together to identify problems, make decisions, and find ways to improve their lives and neighborhoods.

25% of our Diocesan National CCHD Collection stays within the Diocese of Richmond to fight poverty and defend human dignity. The Local CCHD Grant is now available. To apply, click the following links to download the Grant Application Forms and the Criteria. Please read the criteria carefully to see if you qualify. The application forms should be sent to by the end of business day on June 16, 2017. If you have any question, feel free to contact us at
