About the Center for Faith-Based
and Community Initiatives
The aim of the HUD Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships
is to engage faith-based and other community-based organizations
in HUD's mission. We are committed to helping fulfill President
Bush's vision of mobilizing the armies of compassion to strengthen
Faith-based and other grassroots groups are renewing America's
communities every day. They provide publicly important services
and offer invaluable help to those who need it most.
For this reason, HUD seeks to work more closely with them to help
all Americans realize the dream of a decent and affordable place
In particular we seek to engage faith-based and community-based
organizations to help us.
Therefore, the central mission of the Center is to
empower faith-based and other community organizations
to apply for HUD grants. The Center supplies information
and training, but it does not make the decisions about which
groups will be funded. Those decisions are made through
procedures established by each grant program,
generally involving a competitive process.
No grant funding is set aside for faith-based organizations.
Instead, the Faith-Based and Community Initiative creates a
level-playing field for faith-based as well as other community
organizations so that they can work with the government to meet
the needs of America's communities.
One of the ways we do this is to help
- Find FUNDING for Your Organization
- Find PEOPLE Who Can Help You
