What Funders Need to Know About the New York State Grants Gateway
October 16th, 2013 10:00am to 11:30am
Presented by Doug Sauer, CEO, NY Council of Nonprofits and
Michelle Jarvais, CFO, NY Council of Nonprofits
As a funder in New York you may be aware that many of your nonprofit grantees are in the process of becoming ‘prequalified’ with New York State.
All nonprofits must now go through the “Grants Gateway” and become “prequalified” by NYS in order to receive funding for a state contract currently in place or for future funding for which they would like to be considered. This initiative aims at raising the governance and operational standards for state grantees while down the road making the contracting process easier and more efficient.
There are bumps in the road however that may result in current contract renewals being delayed. As a philanthropic investor or local government grant source, you should know how this prequalification process affects your applicants, grantees and funding criteria strategies.
This free session is exclusively for funders and provides insights gleaned from NYCON’s unique knowledge and perspective of the Gateway from work with hundreds of nonprofit members statewide. NYCON has also worked in partnership with the State of New York in developing webinar training content and a FAQ tool on the topic, has conducted webinars serving over 400 participants to date, and has gone through the Gateway process ourselves.
