Nonprofits concerned, confused over Anne Arundel grant rule

Nonprofits concerned, confused over Anne Arundel grant rule

Printer-friendly version

David L. Thompson, vice president of public policy at the National Council of Nonprofits, called the three-year stipulation unusual, particularly if the group provides services the government does not.

Forcing nonprofits to find funding outside of government grants is a common theme across the country as state and federal governments have cut back in an economy still dealing with the after effects of the 2008 recession. But he said time-limits don’t make sense for nonprofits trying to build “continuity.”

“The national trend is the opposite,” Thompson said. “It makes terrible sense (as an) across the board policy.”
