Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships [HUD] Law and Legal Definition

The Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships is a resource center for secular and faith-based non-profit organizations. The Center seeks to partner with the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to address the housing and community development needs of the neighborhoods in which they operate.

The Center builds partnerships and serves as a liaison between the grassroots and federal government. It aims to provide the groups with the latest information about HUD opportunities and programs and other federal resources available to their communities. The Center also convenes outside partners, practitioners, and organizations from the non-profit and faith communities along with policy makers and government officials to more effectively identify and meet the needs of some of the nation’s most vulnerable citizens.
