Catholic Communication Campaign Grant Criteria

 

Grant proposals that meet the criteria of the Catholic Communication Campaign are welcome. Deadline for next grant cycle is March 2, 2015.

The CCC funds media projects – print, television, radio and Internet – that further the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' religious, charitable and educational purposes. Proposals funded by the CCC must meet four criteria:

  1. In its 2013-2016 strategic pastoral plan, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has designated four conference-wide priority initiatives in support of the New Evangelization. Proposals advancing these initiatives will have priority consideration:
      • Faith formation focused on sacramental practice
      • Strengthening marriage and family life
      • Life and dignity of the human person
      • Religious liberty
  2. Projects that are of an arch/diocesan or more local scope (i.e., individual parishes or areas within an archdiocese) within the United States will not be considered by the national CCC; these projects can approach the local arch/diocese for funding consideration. Projects that have a realistic potential impact for markets beyond a single arch/diocese (either a particular geographical region or with a particular population), whether within the United States or elsewhere, may apply to the national CCC for funding. Proposals should include a letter of recommendation or endorsement from an appropriate episcopal authority, or, if developed by a religious order or other international Catholic organization, from the appropriate authority within the order or organization.

  3. Proposals must be unique and/or timely. There is a preference not to provide ongoing funding of projects.

  4. Proposals that have funding from other sources, indicating a broad support, are more likely to receive priority consideration.

Certain requests are not within the mandate of the Catholic Communication Campaign: funding to reduce debt or purchase office or production equipment; projects strictly for parish use; media efforts not directly associated with the activities of and expression of faith in the United States or the country from which it originates; and fictional or semi-fictional productions for theatrical release. CCC funds cannot be used for purchase of real estate, construction of buildings, support for education, equipment repairs or staff salaries that are not related to the funded project.

To ensure eligibility requirements are met, please send a 100 word summary of your proposal to the Secretary of Communications.
