Cooperative Parish Sharing
Important Changes to the Cooperative Parish Sharing Program
Over the years the Cooperative Parish Sharing (CPS) has funded hundreds of projects from parish based ESL classes, to community meals, to home repair programs. Due to the decreased support of donor parishes, the merging and strengthening of recipient parishes, and the existence of other Archdiocesan financial assistance programs, CPS is being phased out.
Parishes which have hunger related programs are eligible to apply for the Archdiocesan CRS Rice Bowl grant program. Applications can be found here.
The remaining eligible parishes which have been receiving CPS funding in the past have been invited to apply for 2020-2021 funding one last time. There is a very limited amount of funding available for the 2020-2021 grant year.
