Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships – Learning from the Past, Building on the Promise

From the passage of welfare reform in the mid-1990s to the creation of the first federal Faith-Based and Community Initiative by the Bush Administration to President Obama's announcement of an Office for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, ICF takes a historic look at how the U.S. Federal Government has been fashioning a new relationship between the programs it funds to benefit needy Americans and the grassroots organizations that are often on the front lines of service delivery. Furthermore, the company looks at what's currently working and offers next steps based on its work with faith-based and neighborhood partnerships throughout the country in an effort to help these programs improve their programming, build their capacity, and enhance their ability to promote self-sufficiency for individuals, families, and communities.
