Public Comments on OMB Proposed Revisions to Government Grants

March 10, 2020

This week, the National Assembly, in partnership with the National Council of Nonprofits, submitted initial comments to the Office of Management and Budget regarding the proposed revisions to government grants, specifically on the subject of indirect cost reimbursements, which are a crucial funding component to nonprofits. This came on the same day as a special webinar on the topic. If you missed it, access the partial recording (OMB commentary removed per their protocol) on-demand. Below is the opening paragraph of the letter. Look for more on this in the coming weeks.

“On behalf of the members of the National Council of Nonprofits and the National Human Services Assembly, we write to provide initial comments to proposed revisions to the OMB Uniform Guidance published in the Federal Register on January 22, 2020. In a subsequent submission, we will provide more detailed comments on a section-by-section basis. At this initial stage, we offer on behalf of our collective membership – charitable nonprofit organizations operating in all 50 states and the District of Columbia – initial comments, questions, and recommendations related to the rules governing indirect cost reimbursements.”
