Guidance to Faith-Based and Community Organizations on Partnering with the Federal Government.
White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, Washington, DC.
The guiding principle behind President George W. Bush's Faith-Based and Community Initiative is that faith-based charities should be able to compete on an equal footing for public dollars to provide public services. President Bush believes that the federal government, within the framework of U.S. Constitutional church-state guidelines, should encourage faith-based charities to reach out with compassion to help even more people in need. This booklet aims to provide guidance for faith-based and community organizations that wish to partner with the U.S. government. The booklet poses and answers specific questions to inform and guide readers. It contains four sections: (1) "Helping Those in Need: An Overview of the Federal Grants Process"; (2) "Partnering with the Federal Government: Some Do's and Don'ts for Faith-Based Organizations"; (3) "Equal Treatment for Faith-Based Providers"; and (4) "Charitable Choice: The Facts".
