Every grant application that riginates within a certain diocese (and ACORN has been good at originating grants in MANY dioceses across the country) is reviewed by what is called the “Diocesan Director for CCHD” who is often also the Dir of Catholic Charities. (S)he reviews the grant, visits with the principles and then advises the bishop on its worthiness. I doubt if any bishop has evber reviewed a CCHD grant request. My guess is that every bishop just signs on the dotted line. The grant request is also reviewed by the CCHD person in Washington with the Diocesan director. The CCHD will decide how much is awarded to the grantee. The diocese gets to keep 25% of the CCHD collection which is a sort of kick-back to do the bidding of the CCHD and support its nonsense.

Thanks for the information. That 25% is a mighty big motivator for the bishop to "look the other way", especially if the diocese is struggling financially.
