New Partnerships Initiative Support Letter
September 24, 2021
CCIH led an effort among faith-based organizations to show our support for the New Partnerships Initiative (NPI) Authorization Act (S. 2509) led by Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) and Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) which would make the NPI a permanent fixture of USAID’s mission and a tool to help local partners build their capacity and allow for sustainable investments. Twenty FBOs joined CCIH in supporting the legislation, which aims to streamline access to USAID resources; strengthen local organizations and build capacity with an emphasis on sustainability; and, authorize funding in each fiscal year from FY22 through FY26 specifically for NPI program grants, increasing awards to new and underutilized partners, such as faith-based organizations.
