This document launched the vision behind the FBCI, set forth its larger goals, and sought to make the case for new partnerships that would engage faith-based and community organizations (FBCOs) in solving social ills.
The FBCI goals envisioned a repositioning of FBCOs to play an expanded and enhanced role in social service delivery through participation in existing agency programs.
The policy foci of the FBCI potentially provided a wide range of opportunities for FBCOs to receive federal funding to support their disparate social services interests.
The implementation of the FBCI was anchored around two distinctive courses of action: changing the environment within federal agencies to render them more receptive to the participation of small, new entrant FBCOs; and preparing this class of organizations to be competitive in the federal funding arena.
The second course of action in the implementation of the FBCI entailed preparing new entrant FBCOs to be effective participants in the competitive federal funding arena.
Agencies issued new guidebooks for FBCOs that offered ideas and suggestions for how they could leverage their interests and resources to secure federal funds in addressing community problems.
