The 2017–2018 Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) grants list shows that the Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition (NWBCCC) received $60,000, bringing the total this organization has received to $290,000 since 2005.

In 2012, the Reform CCHD Now coalition alerted the U.S. bishops to serious problems with NWBCCC including homosexual activism and the promotion of Marxism. Monsignor Kevin Sullivan of the archdiocese of New York responded in writing by indicating that this grantee was previously reviewed and would not receive further grants from the CCHD. 

This anti-cop, pro-Marxist and homosexualist organization is now receiving $60,000 per year from the U.S. bishops through the CCHD program.

He wrote: "After the most recent review of their CCHD grant request, prior to your letter, the NWBCCC was not recommended for funding, and will not be receiving money from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development."

Just two years later, during the 2014–2015 grants cycle, NWBCCC would again receive funding from the CCHD. Toward the end of 2014, we reported how the NWBCCC's agitation tactics resulted in the deaths of two police officers.

In 2016, despite its continued promotion of Marxism and blatant homosexual activism, NWBCCC received yet another grant from the CCHD. And even though we proved NWBCCC's gravely immoral activism in a new report, the CCHD responded by increasing the amount of funding for this vile organization to $60,000 per funding cycle.

Yes, that is correct — this anti-cop, pro-Marxist and homosexualist organization is now receiving $60,000 per year from the U.S. bishops through the CCHD program.


All told, since 2005, the NWBCCC has received $325,000 in nine different grants from the CCHD. And the problems with this grantee continue. NWBCCC's recent activity shows not only the continued promotion of homosexuality, it also shows that NWBCCC is promoting abortion through its membership in the Campaign for New York Health coalition.

Promotion of Homosexuality

One of NWBCCC's official programs is a youth organization called Sistas and Brothas United (SBU). Previous reports noted the blatant promotion of homosexual activism to youth through this program, and sadly this is an ongoing problem.

The signs of homosexual activism are readily apparent NWBCCC's own website, especially where it describes SBU as offering a safe place "for youth in middle and high school to address the various forms of systemic oppression they encounter in our communities, including racism, homophobia, sexism, and ageism."

The description of SBU later continues a focus on youth homosexuality, stating that another component of their work is dismantling the school to prison pipeline for LGBTQ students, among others.

The SBU program's Facebook page, however, makes it abundantly clear that this program is still promoting homosexual activism to kids as one of its major components.
