DHS Published Rulemaking on Nondiscrimination in Matters Pertaining to Faith-Based Organizations
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has published in the Federal Register a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking on Nondiscrimination in Matters Pertaining to Faith-Based Organizations. Following an initial proposal published in 2008, DHS proposes to issue a rule to ensure that faith-based organizations may compete on an equal footing with other organizations for direct federal financial assistance for which they are otherwise eligible, and to allow those groups to fully participate in federally supported social service programs, while beneficiaries under those programs also receive appropriate protections. The proposed rule would implement policy set forth in Executive Orders issued by President Barack Obama and by President George W. Bush, including Executive Order 13559, Fundamental Principles and Policymaking Criteria for Partnerships with Faith-Based and Other Neighborhood Organizations (November 17, 2010).
