Catholic social service agencies to benefit from fund


Parish communities from throughout the Diocese of Trenton have shown how much they value their local Catholic agencies and parish social service outreach programs via a generous donation to the 2022 Catholic Campaign for Human Development.

In a letter to Kevin Cimei, financial director, dated April 4, the CCHD expressed its gratitude to the Diocese of Trenton for its donation totaling $66,986.79.

The annual CCHD collection – sponsored by the U.S. Catholic Bishops and taken up each November before Thanksgiving – allocates 75 percent of the collected funds to the USCCB’s national CCHD office for programs across the country; 25 percent of the collection is retained by each Diocese to support  local anti-poverty projects.

A grant review committee will examine all applications from Burlington, Mercer, Monmouth and Ocean Counties, and award grants in amount ranging from $2,000 to $10,000; priority will be given to new initiatives that enhance or provide a foundation of self-sufficiency for those persons served by the program.

The organizations applying for the grant should have a mission that focuses on social services with an emphasis on basic human needs such as food, clothing, shelter and employment.

Grant recipients will be announced later this year.
