Who is in Charge of CCHD?

Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is the national anti-poverty program of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). CCHD grants are funded by donations from Catholics across the country, especially through an annual parish collection taken up the weekend before Thanksgiving. The local CCHD program is administered by the Archdiocesan Peace and Justice Commission. All CCHD grants are approved by the St. Louis archbishop.
