ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants to establish a state office to help faith-based nonprofits help New York’s poor with food programs, health care, education, job training and other social services.

The Office of Faith-Based Community Development Services, an initiative in the governor’s budget proposal for 2015, would help those groups get grants, including federal money.

He proposes creating a $50 million capital investment program for nonprofits.

Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, has already appointed Assemblyman Karim Camara to lead the effort. The Brooklyn Democrat is an ordained minister.

Mr. Cuomo is delivering his state of the state address and budget proposals on Wednesday.
