About this grant

This general purposes grant supports the National Council of Nonprofit Associations’ effort to strengthen the national network of state nonprofit associations and develop their capacity to support community-based organizations throughout the country. State associations of nonprofits have emerged as effective providers of services and peer-to-peer support to local nonprofit agencies. Recognizing the challenges facing the nonprofit sector through increased scrutiny and regulations, the council provides technical assistance, shares best practices and other relevant information, and offers networking opportunities to state and regional associations to enhance their ability to increase their members’ effectiveness and accountability and to better represent their members at the public policy level.
