How Your Church Can Participate in the Faith-Based Initiative and Help Change Your CommunityBy
Did you know that each year hundreds of millions of dollars are awarded by the government to religious charitable organizations that provide social services to local communities? Since 2001, the Faith-Based and Community Initiative program gives churches and faith-based organizations equal access to government grants on a level playing field with secular groups. Maybe you have considered attempting to access these resources in order to impact your community but have hesitated because of the uncertainties involved. That is why the Family Research Council has just produced a valuable, easy-to-read booklet entitled How Your Church Can Participate in the Faith-Based Initiative and Help Change Your Community.
Some of the important topics covered include "Government Grants: What Your Church Needs to Know," "How and Where to Get Started," "Before Your Church Applies for a Grant,"and Frequently Asked Questions such as "Will accepting a government grant change the way my church hires employees?" This resource-rich booklet provides easy access to must-see government websites and recommended publications. Pastors and ministry leaders across America are leading the way as community change-agents and the Family Research Council stands with you to help facilitate your ministry initiatives.
