LOGON SUCCESSFUL

Welcome to FaithBasedCommunityInitiatives.org.  During the upcoming months as more details emerge from the new White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives (OFBCI), we will be aggregating and disseminating information about the new office and its programs. Our Vision is to educate and assist new and existing Faith-Based and Community Initiatives to apply and qualify for competitive Federal Funding.

Effective immediately, the Federal Government has adopted a new attitude to honor and not restrict faith-based and community initiatives, to accept rather than dismiss such programs, and to empower rather than ignore them.

In welfare and social policy, the Federal Government will play a new role as supporter, enabler, catalyst and collaborator with faith-based and community organizations. The White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives has been established to make Federal programs more friendly to faith-based and community solutions and to make federal funding more accessible.

By Executive Order, effective immediately, each of the following Cabinet agencies will create its own Center for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives to work in tandem with the White House OFBCI, to make federal grants available to Faith-Based and Community Initiatives nationwide.

  • Cabinet Centers for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives:
  • Department of Health and Human Services;
  • Department of Housing and Urban Development;
  • Department of Labor;
  • Department of Justice; and
  • Department of Education.

FaithBasedCommunityInitiatives.org is a convenient web gateway providing direct links to each of these 5 federal agencies and their respective grant programs. We also provide direct links to Charitable Choice Organization for Faith Groups as well as a List of State Liaisons for Faith-Based Initiatives.  Grant descriptions, applications, instructions, qualifications, and deadlines are now just a click away.  Check back often as we will be posting additional links and information as it becomes available.
