Title: Examining Services and Best Practices of Intermediary Organizations and the Faith- and Community-Based Organizations They Serve.

OMB No.: New Collection.

Description: Currently, the Administration for Children and Families, Department of Health and Human Services, is conducting the project “Examining Services and Best Practices of Intermediary Organizations and the Faith- and Community-Based Organizations They Serve.” The purpose of the project is to examine (1) the role of intermediary organizations in assisting faith- and community-based organizations in building their capacity to serve needy individuals and families; (2) innovative and best practices among intermediary organizations; (3) promising practices among faith- and community-based organizations; (4) methods to evaluate the services of both types of organizations; and (5) methods to assess and benchmark performance among faith- and community-based groups. Priority will be given to programs that focus on the following areas; homelessness, hunger, at-risk children, transition from welfare to work, and intensive rehabilitation. The project involves the conduct of case studies of up to 10 intermediary organizations and approximately three to four faith-based and community-based organizations that receive assistance or services from each of the intermediaries. Information collection will be through informal discussions and observations on-site at the organizations, using uniform protocols.
