Welcome to the HUD Center for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.

President Bush’s Faith-Based Initiative originated from the simple idea that our best chance to overcome a community’s deepest problems is to tackle them from within, by welcoming those community partners who truly know how to change lives and entire communities.

As an active leader in the Initiative, HUD has set the standard in policy reforms that welcome organizations rooted in the community. We are leveling the playing field for these organizations, affording them the opportunity to effect an even greater change in neighborhoods across America. These policy changes have allowed faith-based and community organizations to make a unique impact in the lives of society’s most vulnerable citizens, channeling America’s compassion in new directions.

The Center has been producing results in its outreach to potential participants, its regulatory reform efforts, and its responsiveness to faith-based and community organizations.
