USCCB Subcommittee Chairman Announces Nearly $1 Million In Grants, Efforts For Comprehensive Immigration Reform

WASHINGTON-The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), the official domestic anti-poverty agency of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), has approved special grants totaling $800,000 to mobilize Catholics on behalf of comprehensive immigration reform and to prepare Catholic institutions to serve communities benefiting from the reform legislation.

“These grants represent a distinctively Catholic contribution in promoting comprehensive immigration reform. They will strengthen the capacity of our institutions to help immigrant families come out from the shadows and participate more actively in American society,” said Bishop Jaime Soto of Sacramento, California, chairman of the U.S. bishops’ CCHD subcommittee.
