On Thursday, November 16, 2006, the White House and the Departments of Justice, Commerce, Agriculture, Labor, Veterans Affairs, Health & Human Services, Housing & Urban Development, Education, and Homeland Security, the Agency for International Development, and the Small Business Administration will host a conference in Charlotte to help social service organizations learn more about President Bush’s Faith-Based and Community Initiative. These conferences are geared towards faith-based and community organizations that have no history of applying for government grants, as well as those that have applied, but have not yet been successful.

 The conference is free, but pre-registration is required.  Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Visit www.fbci.gov to register online.  We strongly encourage you to register online.  If you are unable to register online, print the registration form attached to this email. Complete the form and fax it to 703-299-4589.  If you are not able to view this file, please call 202-456-6708 to have a form faxed to you. 

 The deadline for registration is Friday, November 10th.  If you must cancel your registration, please send an email to fbci@dtihq.com or a fax to the number listed above so we may accommodate as many people as possible.

The conference is part of a series of regional events that are being held around the country. The conferences provide participants with a general overview of the Faith-Based and Community Initiative, information about the government grants process and available funding opportunities, and an overview of the legal responsibilities that come with the receipt of Federal funds. The events also offer grant writing tutorials for select Federal grant programs.
