From Joliet, Illinois Patch:

Anti-Poverty Organizations Eligible for Grants

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is attempting to address the problem of poverty by providing grants to self-help programs initiated and led by poor people. These groups help create sustainable jobs, preserve affordable housing, improve neighborhoods, and enhance opportunities for people so they can find a dignified way out of poverty.

CCHD is funded by Catholics who generously give in a once-a-year collection at their parishes.(more)
