Catholic parishes, schools, or Archdiocesan entities within the Archdiocese of Hartford are eligible to apply. Grants must be used for hunger and poverty alleviation programs within the Archdiocese of Hartford. Preference will be given to new and innovative programs that demonstrate solutions to hunger with specific, tangible goals and outcomes. Recipients must also confirm their intention to actively participate in and promote the CRS Rice Bowl Lenten catechetical program.
Funding for the grants comes from the Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl program, which allows 25% of the money collected to remain in the Archdiocese where it is used to address local hunger issues. Grant applications are available on our website or by contacting our office at 203-777-7279 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
