On November 9, 2001, the Los Angeles Times reported that "the White House, seeking to salvage one of President Bush's top domestic priorities, has thrown its support behind a newly limited plan for faith-based organizations to provide some of the nation's social services. The administration's more modest approach breathed new life into its faith-based initiative, an effort that had stalled in the Senate but that backers say has become more urgent in the aftermath of Sept. 11."
