Faith-based and community organizations serve some of the most vulnerable populations in the world. They are often embedded in communities and uniquely qualified to identify and meet local needs. USAID's Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships (FBNP) works to strengthen the Agency’s work with faith-based and community organizations by:

Building Bridges:

  • Provide resources on how to work with USAID and connect these organizations with appropriate points of contacts within the Agency.

  • Convene faith-based and community organizations with USAID leadership via meetings and events to discuss shared priorities.

Strengthening Capacity:

  • Provide USAID staff with data-driven tools and resources on Strategic Religious Engagement (SRE), FBNP’s model for working with local religious communities and partnering with faith-based organizations.

Advancing Policy:

  • Gather and analyze data on the role and impact of engaging with religious communities and partnering with faith-based organizations.
  • Represent USAID in interagency and international groups working at the intersection of religion and development.
