The South Carolina Commission for Minority Affair’s Community Based Programs Initiative exists to assist faith and community based groups implement programs to alleviate socio-economic deprivation in minority and poor communities. Because many of those groups are in their infancy, capacity building is the major focus of the Commission’s work in this area.

Our Community Based Progams Initiative conforms to President George Bush’s faith based approach to providing community services closest to the people who need them. This work includes providing technical assistance and training in the following areas:

  • Process for becoming state charter
  • Qualification and selection of Board Members
  • Non-Profit board training
  • Community partnerships
  • Funding opportunities
