USAID

USAID works alongside faith-based and community groups to raise awareness about critical global development issues and address the needs of vulnerable populations around the world.

Working closely with faith-based and community stakeholders is critical to the success of USAID’s mission. These efforts are coordinated through USAID’s Center for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives (CFBCI).

The CFBCI serves existing and prospective faith-based and community partners by:

  • Providing a bridge for faith-based and community groups seeking to connect with USAID’s mission, directing them to appropriate points-of-contact within the Agency, offering resources to help guide them through the partnership process, and providing information about new grant opportunities.
  • Convening faith-based and community groups to catalyze new opportunities for collaboration between these groups, and between these groups and the government.
  • Helping to eliminate barriers encountered by faith-based and community organizations seeking to partner with USAID on a range of global development issues including global health, child survival and food security.

The CFBCI is part of the network of the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, which works to build bridges between the federal government and nonprofit organizations, both secular and faith-based, to more effectively serve those in need in the U.S. and around the world.
