What Does Obama's 2014 Budget Mean for Nonprofits?
Last week, President Obama released his FY14 budget, outlining the President's priorities for the next year. Click here for a detailed overview released by the White House.
Rick Cohen starts off his analysis by saying the President’s budget, "offers nonprofits a variety of conceptual sweeteners as an overall promise as to what the White House would do for nonprofits." Independent Sector published a concise overview of budget items that will affect nonprofits, while Corporation for Enterprise Development focuses on the budget's commitment to strengthening the nation's most vulnerable households. The budget also includes a phase-in of required electronic 990 filing which could, "produce useful information for everyone who works with nonprofits or uses nonprofit services" states the Aspen Institute.

Blog Post of the Week
Defending the One City Fund
Last week, the DC City Council held a hearing on the proposed One City Fund. Community Foundation President Terri Lee Freeman, City Administrator Allen Lew, and over two dozen nonprofits testified in support of the fund.
The Nonprofit Roundtable also testified at the hearing and submitted a letter to the Council last week, and we urge our DC members to do the same. The One City Fund faces an uncertain future without your support- so write to your council member, sign onto others' letters, and pick up the phone to guarantee this opportunity to create a healthier, greener, and more equitable DC.

Housing Vouchers in Fairfax Facing Grim Reality
With sequestration, federal housing funds were slashed, causing local housing program funding to drop dramatically. Many local governments responded by taking the "use it or lose it" mentality- sometimes informing the recipients their vouchers would be void in just a few days. FACETS manager Jerrianne Anthony says that when the notices started pouring in, "we basically just began scrounging."
The Washington Post reports that this problem will affect up to 150 individuals and families in Fairfax alone.
Nonprofit NoVA and the Nonprofit Roundtable are looking for your stories of how Housing Choice Vouchers are being affected in your region. E-mail
