The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) funds community organizations that address the root causes of poverty through systemic change and training those living in poverty to speak for themselves.
There are two tracks for CCHD funding: Community Development and Economic Development.
CCHD offers local grants as well. We support organizations in Monroe Country that are doing similar community development work. We often support groups that are not ready to apply for the national grant or whose national grant has been completed. Please download the attached CCHD guidelines and application form.
Information regarding the national grants is available at usccb.org/cchd. If you have further questions about the national grants please contact Laurie Konwinski at Laurie.Konwinski@dor.org or 607-272-5062

Hundreds of adults in parishes throughout the Diocese of Rochester have completed the JustFaith justice formation program, changing their lives and bringing renewed vigor to their parish social ministry programs.
The commitment to this vision and to JustFaith requires hard work, and reaps great rewards. Group members meet weekly, sharing conversation and prayer about issues that are raised in the books they read, the videos and speakers they learn from together, and their own life experiences and spiritual journeys. Learn more at JustFaith.org.
