By the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 301 of title 3 of the United States Code, I hereby order as follows: Section 1. The agencies represented on the Council shall participate in a Veterans Employment Initiative. Faith-based and other community organizations are indispensable in meeting the needs of poor Americans and distressed neighborhoods. The members shall be persons with experience and expertise in fields related to the provision of social services by faith-based and other neighborhood organizations. Those individuals may be hired into any federal occupation and at any grade level for which they are qualified. For information regarding each agency's implementation of these final regulations, the contact information for that agency follows. The Council shall bring together leaders and experts in fields related to the work of faith-based and neighborhood organizations in order to: identify best practices and successful modes of delivering social services; evaluate the need for improvements in the implementation and coordination of public policies relating to faith-based and other neighborhood organizations; and make recommendations to the President, through the Executive Director, for changes in policies, programs, and practices that affect the delivery of services by such organizations and the needs of low-income and other underserved persons in communities at home and around the world.
The contractor agrees to post in conspicuous places, available to employees and applicants for employment, notices to be provided by the contracting officer setting forth the provisions of this nondiscrimination clause. Further, the Section developed the Departments external guidance for its own recipients. As commenters noted, however, there was considerable variation in the way the Agencies addressed this issue in their proposed regulations. The Agencies note that this regulatory definition includes key language from the Advisory Council's report and is grounded in relevant Supreme Court precedents such as Hunt v. It is critical that the Federal Government strengthen the ability of such organizations and other nonprofit providers in our neighborhoods to deliver services effectively in partnership with Federal, State, and local governments and with other private organizations, while preserving our fundamental constitutional commitments guaranteeing the equal protection of the laws and the free exercise of religion and forbidding the establishment of religion. It also seems inconsistent with the views of many of the commenters.
The Agencies also focused on the fact that the text of section 2 d of the Executive order does not limit these nondiscrimination obligations to direct aid programs. Faith-based and other community organizations are indispensable in meeting the needs of poor Americans and distressed neighborhoods. Up to 26 weeks of the 52 week service requirement may be waived when the head of an agency or designee that employed the family member overseas certifies that the family member's 52 weeks of employment were cut short because of a non-personal situation that necessitated the relocation of the family member from the overseas post. The President shall appoint the additional members, who shall include individuals with knowledge and experience in elections, election management, election fraud detection, and voter integrity efforts, and any other individuals with knowledge or experience that the President determines to be of value to the Commission. Contracts may be cancelled, terminated, or suspended absolutely or continuance of contracts may be conditioned upon a program for future compliance approved by the Secretary of Labor.
Misconduct should be dealt with promptly in the Federal workforce. Constitution, the creation of the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives has been viewed as historic and significant. Government cannot be replaced by such organizations, but it can and should welcome them as partners. How many times can the eligibility be used? With the creation of the office, an infrastructure was set up to draft appropriate legislation, facilitate necessary regulatory changes, and promote the federal government's involvement with these organizations. These presidential requirements are intended to remove unnecessary barriers for timely and effectively addressing misconduct, unacceptable performance, and other matters. Commenters asserted that there are protections for beneficiaries when accessing programs of providers that receive indirect Federal financial assistance, such as nondiscrimination against beneficiaries, and those beneficiaries would be unaware of such protections without a written notice.
Another commenter objected to the proposed regulatory language— i. The executive branch wants faith-based and community organizations, to the fullest opportunity permitted by law, to compete on a level playing field for grants, contracts, programs, and other Federal funding opportunities. The efforts of faith-based and community organizations are essential to revitalizing communities, and the Federal Government welcomes opportunities to partner with such organizations through innovative, measurable, and outcome-driven initiatives. An agency may extend an individual's appointment eligibility beyond three years for periods equivalent to the time the individual was accompanying a sponsor on an official assignment to an area of the U. The paramount goal is compassionate results, and private and charitable community groups, including religious ones, should have the fullest opportunity permitted by law to compete on a level playing field, so long as they achieve valid public purposes, such as curbing crime, conquering addiction, strengthening families and neighborhoods, and overcoming poverty. On November 8, 2016, Donald Trump won the electoral college vote 304 to 227, although his opponent, , had received 2.
With the rationale that these organizations operate activities that are not specifically religious, but rather ones that benefit the U. The Federal Government can preserve these fundamental commitments while empowering faith-based and neighborhood organizations to deliver vital services in our communities, from providing mentors and tutors to school children to giving ex-offenders a second chance at work and a responsible life to ensuring that families are fed. . Commenters stated that a written notice would help protect the religious liberty rights of the clients and beneficiaries of all federally funded programs. Faith-based and other community organizations are indispensable in meeting the needs of poor Americans and distressed neighborhoods.

Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies, from Sylvia M. They further support the steps agencies should already be taking to support plans to maximize employee performance. For Immediate Release Office of the Press Secretary December 12, 2002 Executive Order: Equal Protection of the Laws for Faith-based and Community Organizations By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 121 a of title 40, United States Code, and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, and in order to guide Federal agencies in formulating and developing policies with implications for faith-based organizations and other community organizations, to ensure equal protection of the laws for faith-based and community organizations, to further the national effort to expand opportunities for, and strengthen the capacity of, faith-based and other community organizations so that they may better meet social needs in America's commu-nities, and to ensure the economical and efficient administration and completion of Government contracts, it is hereby ordered as follows: Section 1. The office also regularly disseminates information about available federal funding opportunities to the relevant organizations, hosts conferences, and produces written materials to educate the public about the role that the federal government has come to play with faith-based and community organizations. This delivery of social services must be results oriented and should value the bedrock principles of pluralism, nondiscrimination, evenhandedness, and neutrality. Government cannot be replaced by such organizations, but it can and should welcome them as partners.
However, the Agencies also believe that they should retain whatever discretion is afforded them under applicable Federal law to fund, or not to fund, other such activities that can be publicly funded consistent with the Establishment Clause, while following any prohibitions against funding such activities consistent with their funding statutes. Faith-based and community organizations have tremendous ability to serve individuals, families, and communities through means that are different from those of government and with capacity that often exceeds that of government. The Advisor shall be housed in the Office of Public Liaison and shall work with that office and the Domestic Policy Council, in consultation with the Centers for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives established by Executive Order 13198, Executive Order 13280, Executive Order 13342, and Executive Order 13397, to implement this order. Department of Justice, issue guidance to agencies on the implementation of the Executive order.
