The White House Office for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships is a resource for nonprofits and community organizations, both secular and faith-based, looking for ways to make a bigger impact in their communities, learn their obligations under the law, cut through red tape and make the most of what the federal government has to offer in order to more effectively serve Americans in need.
This work is carried out by the 11 federal agency Centers for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships and the Strategic Advisor at the Corporation for National and Community Service, working closely with the President’s Cabinet secretaries.
The White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships also coordinates the President's Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships. This Advisory Council is a group of 25 leaders from both faith-based and non-sectarian organizations, each serving one-year terms. The Advisory Council forms recommendations on how the federal government can more effectively partner with faith-based and neighborhood organizations.
