Low-income groups to receive $115,000 in grants

The Campaign for Human Development will award $115,000 in grants Aug. 20 to seven local low-income groups that are working to eliminate poverty.

Retired Archbishop William D. Borders of the Baltimore Roman Catholic Archdiocese will award the grants -- ranging from $4,000 to $50,000 -- at a luncheon from 11: 30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at St. Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Church Hall, 3615 Harford Road.

The recipients qualified for the grants by addressing the causes of poverty and working to change institutions that perpetuate poverty.

The campaign, now in its 26th year, was founded by the American Catholic bishops to educate Americans in the principles of social justice and to work with low-income, self-help groups. Funding for the grants comes from a yearly pre-Thanksgiving collection in Catholic parishes.

In Baltimore, Catholics have donated more than $2.5 million to the campaign since 1970, and about 90 groups have been awarded grants.

Information: 235-5136.
