In Our State
On March 8, 2022, Governor Little announced that the public health emergency declared in response to the COVID-19 pandemic will end on April 15, 2022. The end of this declaration disables use of Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funds to cover costs associated with the distribution of critical supplies, support, and other emergency needs. According to the Governor’s statement, Idaho is maintaining a fund to respond to COVID-19 if needs change in the future.
FEMA funding has benefitted many nonprofits in emergency management services by providing the funds to serve their communities throughout the ongoing global crisis.
On March 9, 2022, the House passed an omnibus spending bill with a bipartisan vote. Despite efforts from the nonprofit sector, the $1.5 trillion funding package does not include nonprofit policy priorities.
Bring the importance of funding nonprofit priorities to your congressional delegation by reaching out to your representatives:
Senator James Risch
Senator Mike Crapo
Congressman Russ Fulcher (1st District)
Congressman Mike Simpson (2nd District)
Idaho Nonprofit Center Advocacy Agenda
The Idaho Nonprofit Center’s Policy Agenda details the policy issues that affect the nonprofit sector and provides an outline for determining whether the Center will advocate for or against state or federal legislation. This is what guided us when making the above decisions.
We welcome comments and feedback on our draft policy agenda which can be viewed here. Feedback or comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Idaho Nonprofit Center would like to thank the National Council of Nonprofits for Content Themes.
