About this grant

The Strengthening Nonprofit Fiscal Sustainability, Accountability and Civic Participation project is focused on defending and expanding nonprofit policy advocacy by making sure federal grantees understand the rules covering advocacy-related activities.This grant will provide support to the final year of the project. Activities will include completing the three-volume guide, "Nonprofit Advocacy and Living with Federal Funds"; continuing to monitor and report on changes to federal grant rules; and providing technical assistance and training on those rules to nonprofit organizations.During the past year and a half the project developed basic, up-to-date research on federal grant rules regarding advocacy; created a detailed outline for a three-part, user-friendly primer on the federal grant rules governing advocacy; posted basic materials on-line; delivered presentations regarding grant rules at numerous conferences and meetings around the country; and provided technical assistance to numerous additional organizations via e-mail and telephone.
