Federal Stimulus Resources
CNM is committed to providing resources and ongoing updates about the federal stimulus package (the CARES Act), as well as state and local resources as they become available. As details unfold about eligibility requirements, timelines, and applications, we will share the latest updates here.
In the months of May and June, CNM offered member organizations a complimentary hour of consulting for specific crisis-related guidance. Thanks to the support of the Joe C. Davis Foundation and Jackson National Life Insurance Company, the Crisis Support Quick Consulting program was designed to assist nonprofits with contingency planning projects to navigate through crisis.
The complimentary sessions provided guided assistance to nonprofits for projects related to the top three pain points gleaned from CNM’s March member needs assessment survey: budgeting and finance; fundraising and development; and optimal program and service delivery. Each session paired nonprofit staff with CNM consultants for prep work, a brief session, and tools and resources for next steps. The goal of the program was to make an impact on organizations’ struggles in the current climate by revisiting and pivoting their 2020 strategic plans.
Applications for this program are now closed.
