There are two levels of CCHD funding, national and local.  Larger, national funds are applied for through the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.  Visit their website here to learn more.  Groups within the Archdiocese of Cincinnati can apply for smaller grants ($5,000 to $10,000) through the Catholic Social Action Office and Archdiocesan CHD Committee.  Applications for this stream of funding are now being accepted  and must be postmarked by March 16,2018.  The grant cycle runs from July 1 to June 30.  Download the application at  the link below, and please follow carefully the instructions, criteria and principles for funding.  Please contact Catholic Social Action with any questions.  It is recommended that new groups applying for funding discuss their proposal with the CCHD Director before applying.
