DHS/OS RIN: 1601-AA93 Publication ID: Fall 2020 
Title: Equal Participation of Faith-Based Organizations in DHS's Programs and Activities: Implementation of Executive Order 13831  

This rule would amend DHS’s regulations to implement Executive Order 13831 (Establishment of a White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative).  In January 2020, DHS published a proposed rule that would provide clarity regarding the rights and obligations of faith-based organizations participating in DHS’s programs.  The proposed rule would align with DHS’s goal of implementing its programs and activities consistent with the First Amendment to the Constitution and the requirements of federal law, including the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
