On Tuesday, July 29, the White House and the Departments of Justice,Agriculture, Labor, Health & Human Services, Housing & Urban Development, and Education and the Agency for International Development will host a Conference in Minneapolis, MN, to help faith-based and community organizations learn more about President Bush’s Faith-Based and Community Initiative. The Federal government is working to make sure that faith-based and community groups can compete on an equal footing for Federal dollars, receive greater private support, and face fewer bureaucratic barriers.

The Conference is part of a series of regional Conferences that will be held round the country. These Conferences will equip participants with information about Federal programs that are suited to their needs, the Federal funding process, and the legal requirements that may apply to recipients of Federal funds. It will also give them practical information on the grant-writing process and successful practices from other organizations, as well as an opportunity to network with Federal officials.
