Borrello Says Executive Order Hurting Nonprofits

Borrello Says Executive Order Hurting Nonprofits

Printer-friendly version

“Community-based nonprofits are core to our state’s health, social, cultural and economic well-being. The state has not lived up to its prompt contractual and payment obligations to nonprofits for decades, greatly weakening our capacity to be resilient during this pandemic crisis. It is unconscionable the governor issued Executive Order 202.48 to waive what few protections local nonprofits doing business with the State have, as we struggle to provide vital services to the state’s most vulnerable populations,” stated Doug Sauer, CEO of the New York Council of Nonprofits. “We are urging the governor to rescind Executive Order 202.48 and immediately and fully implement the recommendations repeatedly published by the State Comptroller. Local nonprofits are being forced to close their doors every day in the face of this pandemic, thousands of people are losing their jobs, the unmet needs of individuals and families become more dire, and the hopes of recovery become more distant.”
