Has the Promise of the OMB Uniform Guidance Become Reality?

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 wants to know if the promise of the OMB Uniform Guidance has become a reality.

If your nonprofit has government grants or contracts, please complete the Nonprofit Uniform Guidance Implementation Survey. Your individual responses will be kept confidential, but our state’s aggregated results will help inform advocacy efforts with regard to the OMB Uniform Guidance and more generally, government-nonprofit grant/contracting reform.

Please complete the survey by September 8, 2017.
