The Catholic Campaign for Human Development's economic development program focuses on supporting five types of Economic Development Institutions (EDIs). EDIs are typically community-based organizations and businesses that create just workplaces, provide good jobs and develop assets for low income people that are owned by families and communities. CCHD supports EDI's that have structures in place that encourage people living in poverty to hold leadership roles in, and have ownership of the organization. CCHD's Economic Development Program (EDP) maintains a three-year eligibility limit. CCHD will grant a maximum of three years of support to an Economic Development Institution (EDI). These years need not be sequential.
