Is your organization seeing the benefits of federal grants reforms? If your organization has government grants or contracts, complete the Nonprofit Uniform Guidance Implementation Survey by Sept. 8. This survey, developed by the National Council of Nonprofits, a valued partner of the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities, will help assess if the promise of the federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Uniform Guidance is a reality for your organization and others.

A few years ago, the federal government adopted grants reforms designed in part to improve the way governments at all levels treat nonprofits that perform services on their behalf. Notably, the reforms, known as the OMB Uniform Guidance, provide that nonprofits are entitled to be reimbursed by state and local governments for some or all of their indirect costs when federal money is in the funding stream.

The National Council of Nonprofits is launching a short survey to determine the level and prevalence of implementation of the OMB Uniform Guidance. If your nonprofit has government grants or contracts, please complete the Nonprofit Uniform Guidance Implementation Survey by Sept. 8. Your individual responses will be kept confidential, and the results will help inform the National Council’s and Alliance’s joint advocacy efforts with regard to the OMB Uniform Guidance and, more generally, government-nonprofit grant/contracting reform.
