President Bush's Faith-Based & Community Initiative.
White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, Washington, DC.
Despite efforts by the federal and state governments to battle social distress, there are many people who still suffer from poverty and despair. People are calling out for help. For years, faith-based and community groups have been assisting these people and others in need. The federal government has not often been a willing partner to these faith-based and community groups. President George W. Bush wants to change the complicated rules and regulations that hinder these groups from competing for federal funds on an equal footing with other, larger charities. It is one of his top domestic priorities. This brochure explains the philosophy of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. The brochure outlines the activities and the priority areas of the White House Office. It also discusses White House conferences on Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. The brochure lists possible resources for grassroots groups seeking federal funds and provides some basic facts about federal grants. (BT)
