Proposal Description:
The purpose of Miami NICE Project is to assist small faith-based and community organizations (FBCOs) and non-profit organizations in acquiring and developing the skills and tools needed to increase their efficiency; improve their sustainability and effectiveness; and prepare them as collaborators. Miami NICE is funded as an intermediary agency through the Compassion Capital Fund (CCF) from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration of Children and Families. The CCF, created in 2002, is a key component of President Bush’s faith-based and community initiative. CCF helps FBCOs to increase their effectiveness and enhance their ability to provide social services by building their organizational capacity. CCF works through intermediary organizations, such as Miami NICE, that serve as a bridge between the Federal government and FBCOs. Intermediary organizations provide capacity building in the form of technical assistance, training and sub-awards.
