Nonprofits are critical players in communities responding to the COVID-19 public health emergency, and the related effects of major disruptions to daily life. Bookmark this page for up-to-date information for nonprofits to address all aspects of the crisis on their own organizations and volunteers, meeting the needs of their communities, and adapting day to day.

Up-to-date as of September 29th, 2021

 

We take a stand against all forms of hate, racism, and xenophobia. Nonprofits have an important role to play in keeping communities free of hatred and violence, and ourselves making equitable decisions in this time of crisis. COVID-19 is a global pandemic, the likes of which we have never seen. It is therefore incumbent upon all of us to stand together as a community of neighbors, colleagues, and leaders. This time calls upon all of us – our members, friends, and partners – to be generous, safe, and kind.

 

GENERAL INFORMATION

Funding for Nonprofits
Nonprofit Operations, Business Continuity, and Employee Policies

The White House has announced “The Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is developing a rule that will require all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated or require any workers who remain unvaccinated to produce a negative test result on at least a weekly basis before coming to work. OSHA will issue an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) to implement this requirement. This requirement will impact over 80 million workers in private sector businesses with 100+ employees.”

ARPA Advocacy

On March 11, 2021 President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) into law. This federal relief package allocates $4.038 billion to Maryland state government and $2.317 billion to state and local governments in Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (CSLFRF). These recovery funds are intended to be spent quickly, by December 31, 2024, to support public health response, address negative economic impacts, replace public sector revenue loss, offer premium pay for essential workers and improve water, sewer and broadband infrastructure.

Maryland Nonprofits is dedicated to the equitable allocation of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to Maryland’s nonprofit sector and the communities we serve.
