• Description

To promote better understanding about the intersection between the nonprofit sector and our nation's economic recovery, including the recently-enacted American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 ("Act"), the National Council of Nonprofits is preparing a series of Special Reports. This first Special Report presents the following materials: --Provisions of Potential Interest to Nonprofits (pages 2-7) This section provides detail on specific grants in program areas in the Act that potentially could be of interest to a wide range of nonprofits. Each summary describes the nature of the program and shows the amount appropriated. --Appendix (pages 8-11) For those interested in knowing the broader scope of this historic legislation (and perhaps seeing if your nonprofit might have other unique grant opportunities), the Appendix summarizes the major appropriations and tax cuts in the 407-page Act.
