Parish Grant Workshop To Be Held Sept. 15 At Catholic Center

Published September 3, 2009

A grant workshop for parishes and nonprofit groups engaged in anti-poverty and community-building programs is to be held from 6:30-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 15, at the Catholic Center, 680 West Peachtree St. NW.

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development sets aside grants of up to $4,000 to help parishes and smaller community organizations to achieve their goals. The workshop is organized by Parish & Social Justice Ministries of Catholic Charities Atlanta. The purpose of these small grants is to facilitate education programs rooted in Catholic social teaching and bring together separated communities within parishes.

The community grants are awarded to smaller community nonprofit organizations with projects created with leadership and input from low-income people. The projects are directed at changing social and public policy systems that contribute to poverty.

Projects must benefit a significant number of people in North Georgia, be consistent with Catholic social teaching, be non-partisan and cannot focus on charitable services to individuals.

Community grant applications are available in the fall and must be submitted by Jan. 5.
