Mr. Obama told an audience in Ohio last summer, "You can't use that grant money to proselytize to the people you help and you can't discriminate against them."

Joshua DuBois, a 26-year-old Pentecostal minister who led religious outreach for Mr. Obama during the presidential race, will direct the new White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Mr. DuBois said in an interview, "The president is still very much committed to clear constitutionality and legality in this program. He's committed to nondiscrimination."
