The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is the official domestic anti-poverty agency of the bishops of the Catholic Church in the United States.  Led by the USCCB Subcommittee on the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, CCHD demonstrates the principles of Catholic social teaching by helping low-income people and communities to organize to improve their lives. CCHD provides grants to self-help community organizations and economic development initiatives to address the causes of poverty in low-income communities.
