About Office of Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships

The SBA office works with faith-based and neighborhood organizations to build awareness of SBA programs that can transform neighborhoods and change lives. The SBA has some great programs; but, all too frequently, the people who could take advantage of these programs have no idea they exist. That’s where faith-based and neighborhood organizations can help. Non-profits are great partners because they know their communities. They know their concerns, their needs and their personalities; and, most importantly, these organizations have won the respect of the people they serve.
