Title: USAID Faith-Based and Community Organization Survey.
Type of Review: New Information Collection.
The Center for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives (CFBCI) supports the commitment from the White House and USAID to expand our partnership community by building broad and deep relationships with the nongovernmental organization (NGO) community at large. In order to better coordinate the Agency's work with NGOs and to improve the effectiveness and extent of the Agency's outreach to the NGO community, the CFBCI is requesting to send out a voluntary, electronic survey to contacts with NGOs who have previously interacted with or expressed interest in working with USAID and the CFBCI. The survey will request updated contact and organizational information on NGOs working in international development and humanitarian relief around the world. By collecting such information, the Agency will be able to engage these organizations in a more efficient and less duplicative way. In addition, it will allow the Agency to better monitor its success in engaging a broad range of NGOs.
Responding to the survey is optional. An organization's response or nonresponse will not have any impact—positive or negative on its future relationship with the Agency.
