Grant Information

 

Applications for 2016 Catholic Communication Campaign funding are now closed.  The next deadline for grant applications will be announced here early in 2017.

The CCC funds media projects – print, television, radio and Internet – that further the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' religious, charitable and educational purposes. 

Proposals funded by the CCC must meet these criteria:

  • In its strategic pastoral plans, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops designates conference-wide priority initiatives.  Proposals advancing such initiatives will have priority consideration.  Priorities of the 2017-2020 USCCB Strategic Plan will be announced soon.
  • Projects that are of an arch/diocesan or more local scope (i.e., individual parishes or areas within an archdiocese) within the United States will not be considered by the national CCC; these projects can approach the local arch/diocese for funding consideration. Projects that have a realistic potential impact for markets beyond a single arch/diocese (either a particular geographical region or with a particular population), whether within the United States or elsewhere, may apply to the national CCC for funding. Proposals should include a letter of recommendations or endorsement from an appropriate episcopal authority, or, if developed by a religious order or other international Catholic organization, from the appropriate authority within the order or organization.
  • Proposals must be unique and/or timely. There is a preference not to provide ongoing funding of projects.
  • Proposals that have funding from other sources, indicating a broad support, are more likely to receive priority consideration.

Certain requests are not within the mandate of the Catholic Communication Campaign: funding to reduce debt or purchase office or production equipment; projects strictly for parish use; media efforts not directly associated with the activities of and expression of faith in the United States or the country from which it originates; and fictional or semi-fictional productions for theatrical release. CCC funds cannot be used for purchase of real estate, construction of buildings, support for education, equipment repairs or staff salaries that are not related to the funded project.
