The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), the anti-poverty initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, announced the distribution of $10.2 million to support projects aimed at addressing the root causes of poverty in the United States.

This marks the third consecutive year that the annual CCHD grants have been over the $10 million mark. CCHD is one of the largest private U.S. funders of anti-poverty programs initiated and run by the poor.
This year’s grant will fund 339 projects throughout the nation, many of which are sponsored by inter-faith organizations. The funded projects take direct and local action on the causes of poverty. “CCHD grants are designed to offer people a way out of poverty for a lifetime, not just for a day,” said Father Robert J. Vitillo, executive director of CCHD.
