Grant Information - Special Collection for the Church in Haiti


After the 2010 earthquake, the bishops held a special collection for earthquake assistance in every diocese in the United States. U.S. Catholics were extraordinarily generous, giving over $85 million in a single weekend. The funds were used by CRS for humanitarian relief supplying food, water, medical aid, and temporary housing to the victims of the earthquake. 

Other funds were set aside for longer term needs. The bishops decided that 60% of the special collection funds would go to CRS for its important work and the remaining 40% would be used by the USCCB for reconstruction of the destroyed and damaged Catholic Church infrastructure in Haiti.
