Archives Catholic Charities offers grants for addressing local poverty

April 4, 2018

Ogdensburg - Catholic Charities is now accepting applications for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, a local grant program for the Diocese of Ogdensburg.

Unlike other services of the agency which provides direct assistance to individuals, the Campaign for Human Development Grant program provides small grants to human service agencies, churches and other organizations who address the issues of poverty.

Grant applications should stress how the funds will be used to reduce the underlying causes of poverty.  In addition, proposals should include projects that are a new initiative or an enhancement of an established project.

The sponsoring group must be a non-profit, 501c3 organization.

Approved projects will be those that demonstrate the potential for continued funding after the CCHD funds have been expended. Although grant applicants do not have to be catholic, strategies must be consistent with the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church. 

Approved grant amounts range from $1500 to $3000 and applications can be requested from Catholic Charities by mail, phone or e-mail.

If you have any questions or to receive an application, please write to:   Catholic Charities, 6866 State Hgwy. 37, Ogdensburg, NY 13669 (315)393-2255; or e-mail your request and mailing address to: ccdirector@wadhams.edu 

Grant applications are due back to Catholic Charities by April 30.
