The Faith-Based and Community Initiative focuses on expanding partnerships with non-profit sector partners and soliciting private sector co-investors to help America's communities in need.

In an effort to support non-profit organizations with submitting quality government grant applications, the U.S. Census Bureau developed an online toolkit to assist applicants with obtaining Census information for grant writing and community needs assessment. Census is the leading source of quality data about our nation's people and economy. Census data drives key elements of grant applications and grant proposals are strengthened by good supportive data which demonstrates a need within a community.

DOC would like to conduct a study to evaluate the effectiveness of the Faith-Based and Community Initiatives toolkit Web site and, specifically the “Additional Resources” link.
