Northern New York Diocese offers grants
The fight against poverty across the region is receiving a financial boost from the Diocese of Ogdensburg. Individual agencies around the north country working to help the less fortunate have until the end of the month to apply for special funding through a Catholic Charities program aimed at supporting those eyeing new and innovative ways to help the poor. The Catholic Campaign for Human Development is a local grant program being administered through the Diocese of Ogdensburg. The Northern New York Diocese includes all or part of Lewis, Jefferson, St. Lawrence, Clinton, Franklin, Essex, Hamilton and Herkimer counties. Although grant applicants do not have to be from Catholic groups or organizations, strategies for helping the north country’s poor must be consistent with the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church, officials said. Applications can be requested by calling Catholic Charities by April 30 at 315-393-2255. Read more...
