They have continually demonstrated a commitment to help the marginalized, fragmented and underserved rebuild throughout our nation’s communities – especially in our inner-city neighborhoods. For years, faith and community organizations have been faced with the task of coming up with creative financing techniques – but often lacking in timely information, capacity-building and organizational skill sets. As more community organizations face the realities of dwindling resources, it is even more important to mobilize our nation’s community organizations to address their neighborhood needs. Both faith and community organizations should be better informed about government programs and grants available from funding agencies and this can only be effectively done by providing a proper training forum. Training Goals The overall goals of HUD’s Faith and Community Based Training Program are to: • Address the misconceptions surrounding faith-based and government partnerships; • Arm these non-profit community organization’s with practical and useful information as they strive to achieve economic empowerment and wealth creation in their respective communities; • Educate faith and community organizations about the opportunities to participate in the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) programs; • More importantly, provide community-based-organizations with the necessary grant writing and capacity-building skills to submit competitive applications to HUD and other grant sources. Workshop Intent & Structure HUD’s Fall 08 Grant Writing Training is a FREE, one-day Technical Assistance workshop designed to educate mid-level non-profit CBOs – both faith-based or secular – on targeted grant writing procedures to successfully access HUD and other related grant funds. Trainers, selected from a cadre of HUD staff and subsequently taught the course material, are provided by HUD’s Center for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives (see http://www.hud.gov/offices/fbci/4thtraining.cfm). Notices are being sent out to community-based organizations by the Los Angeles Field Office and the City of Inglewood – the latter, this fall’s event host – regarding a training workshop targeting representatives of mid-level South Bay non-profit organizations. The workshop’s goal is to increase their organizational capacity and knowledge skill-sets for the betterment of their communities. For information on how to register, contact Stephen D. Clark – HUD’s Field Office Faith Based Liaison – at 213.534-2508 or by email at Stephen.D.Clark@hud.gov. There will be no workshop admittance by any individual representing a CBO without prior screening and subsequent registration. Finally, your organization must be a 501 (c) 3 to attend.
