$50 million for strengthen Charities
"The stimulus law also includes $50-million for a new program to strengthen charities so they can help people suffering from the economic downturn. This money comes in place of $100-million that the House proposed for the Compassion Capital Fund, a program created by President Bush to provide money to religious and other charities. It would be earmarked for "capacity-building grants" for groups with "clear and measurable goals" that are "able to evaluate the success of their program," says a report by the House-Senate conference committee that drew up the final bill."
