TOLEDO – Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo is accepting applications for grants to assist local groups working to address causes of poverty in northwest Ohio. Two types of grants are available — Community Development and Economic Development — and are made available through funding from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD).

Local CCHD grant applications for up to $15,000 are available to 501c3 non-profit organizations that demonstrate grass-roots efforts to break the cycle of poverty by empowering the poor within the Diocese of Toledo. Eligible counties include Allen, Crawford, Defiance, Erie, Fulton, Hancock, Henry, Huron, Lucas, Ottawa, Paulding, Putnam, Richland, Sandusky, Seneca, Van Wert, Williams, Wood and Wyandot counties.

Established in 1970, CCHD is the domestic anti-poverty program of the U.S. Catholic Bishops and is funded by an annual national collection in churches. Applicants do not need to be affiliated with the Catholic Church but must be in compliance with Catholic moral and social teachings.

Local grant applications are due March 19. To obtain an application or for more information, please visit or contact CCHD coordinator Ms. Germaine Kirk at or 419-244-6711, ext. 225.
