You may know that Wisconsin does not have a statewide nonprofit association. Absent that resource, we can turn to the National Council of Nonprofits (NCN) for guidance on legislation affecting nonprofits.
Families First Coronavirus Response Act Analysis
The NCN offered this analysis of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), which expands access to paid sick leave and family medical leave, and reimburses employers who offer them.
Nonprofit Advocacy Opportunities
Board members eager to support your nonprofit through this uncertain time may follow this advocacy guidance from the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities. This national organization recommends action urging federal legislators to offer explicit financial relief to nonprofits.
Recommendations for Preparation
The NCN urges nonprofits to take several steps to equip themselves to handle sick leave, manage business continuity and support remote work.
