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 America's communities.

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 to live.

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 you:

  • Find FUNDING for Your Organization
  • Find PEOPLE Who Can Help You
  • Find Useful RESOURCES
