CWN Editor's Note: The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops announced the distribution of over $10 million in grants from national collections.

Fifteen grants totaling more than $1.2 million were given to Catholic home missions; 32 grants totaling more than $900,000 were awarded to 18 African episcopal conferences; nearly $3.6 million was awarded to 133 projects in formerly Communist nations of Europe; nearly $3.25 million was awarded to 125 projects in Latin America; and $1.45 million was provided to disaster relief that will help rebuild churches in Puerto Rico.

In discussing the grants, the USCCB did not offer a full list of the grant recipients—listing, for example, only one of the 125 grant recipients in Latin America (the Interational Eucharistic Congress in Ecuador).
