Programs within the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) have a long and valued history of partnering with and distributing resources to community organizations (both secular and faith-based). With the signing of Executive Orders and the establishment of the White House Office for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, President George W. Bush has made it a priority of the Departments of Justice, Labor, HHS, HUD, Education, Agriculture, and the Agency for International Development. (See Appendix A.) CNCS is charged with enhancing its outreach and engagement of these two target populations, not through a separate initiative, but as part of the way CNCS does business. Faith and Communities Engaged in Service (FACES) is the CNCS implementation of the president's initiative. (Author abstract)
