Webinar

From the budget to health care, federal policy is critical to Minnesota nonprofits. It’s important that Minnesota nonprofits understand the federal decision-making process and identify good opportunities to engage on the federal level because legislative proposals and administrative actions could bring significant changes that may affect every part of Minnesota’s nonprofit sector.

Join Minnesota Council of Nonprofits’ Federal Policy Campaign to learn more about the federal policy process. This month we will discuss developments regarding the debt ceiling, tax reform, as well as what to expect from the start of the fiscal year. And, as always, we will include ways in which nonprofits can engage with federal policy!

  • POLICY 5: Nonprofits should maintain a sound understanding of the current public policy environment in their activity area and how that impacts the communities they serve.
  • POLICY 8: In situations where an organization’s mission is directly affected by a public policy, nonprofits should lead advocacy efforts regarding the policy, which may involve a variety of advocacy activities including direct lobbying.
