  • Faith Based Community Initiative – House Bill 1965, 82nd Legislature, Regular Session, 2011, further directs certain state agencies to serve as a liaison for faith- and community-based organizations. These state agency liaisons, along with a liaison from the State Commission on National and Community Service, comprise the interagency coordinating group (ICG) that collaborates to strengthen the capacity of faith- and community-based organizations and forge stronger partnerships between those organizations and state agencies to better serve Texans in need. Additionally, faith- and community-based liaisons (FCB liaisons) coordinate resources within their respective agencies to accomplish the legislative duties of an FCB liaison. These duties include identifying and removing unnecessary barriers to partnerships; providing information and training regarding equal opportunity standards for faith- and community-based organizations; facilitating the identification of practices with demonstrated effectiveness for faith- and community-based organizations; and working within their agency to conduct outreach efforts to inform and welcome faith- and community-based organizations that have not traditionally formed partnerships with agencies.
