You can post them on your organizations and/or schools’ websites or print and distribute them with your newsletters and bulletins.

Additional Resources

The White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships has developed a partnership guide for faith-based and neighborhood organizations. The guide provides faith-based and community organizations with information about opportunities to form partnerships across government, on issues from education to housing to job creation, summer feeding programs, responsible fatherhood and disaster response.

Our office does not manage or provide grant money. The Department of Education does provide a number of grant opportunities that can all be found here.

Please note that the inclusion of any resource or program example does not mean, and should not be construed as, a promotion or endorsement of that organization, or any products or services offered by that organization, by the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships or the U.S. Department of Education.
