A New Era of Partnerships: Report of Recommendations to the President

President’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships

This far-reaching reports calls for new types of partnerships – not just those involving federal grant money – between the federal government and neighborhood and faith-based organizations. The new partnerships would involve input on international and domestic policy with an emphasis on addressing the needs of the poor.

Suggestions range from creating one-stop service facilities that merge application processes for programs from food stamps to housing subsidies to posting on websites which foreign programs are being funded by the federal government.

The recommendations are divided into the six areas of concern cited by President Barack Obama when he appointed the council to undertake the study: economic recovery and domestic poverty, fatherhood and healthy families, environment and climate change, inter-religious cooperation, global policy and development, and reform of the Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships.
