Legislative Priorities Survey

Nonprofit Westchester Community,

The nonprofit sector has provided critical work against insurmountable circumstances over the past 20+ months. We have won major victories like the CARES Act and American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) that provided immediate relief through PPP, ERTC, and funding for state and local governments that restored state nonprofit contract withholdings. 

2022 presents several policy opportunities for the sector. Nonprofits can and should be part of economic and public health recovery efforts. Nonprofits can and should advocate for how ARPA’s state and local fiscal relief funding is allocated. And nonprofits should recognize the importance of advocacy. If it were not for robust, coordinated advocacy at all levels of government, nonprofits would not be included in the historic relief from the past year. 

To prioritize our advocacy moving forward, we need to know how the sector is doing. This brief statewide survey, in partnership with Nonprofit New York and NYCON will help us understand the current needs of nonprofits across New York to identify legislative priorities for the sector in the coming years.
