Common Good Vermont Launches Nonprofit Survey of Government Grants and Contracts

Vermont Business Magazine Common Good Vermont announces the launch of a survey of government grants and contracts for Vermont Nonprofits to better understand the experience of nonprofits that contract with or receive state or federal grants. The survey will be open September 1-23 and is open to all 501(c)(3) organizations in Vermont.

In Vermont and across the country, nonprofits have increasingly been called upon to provide what have traditionally been government services. In fact, nonprofits employ 1 in 7 workers in Vermont, making the nonprofit sector the largest industry in the state after government.

However, a growing labor shortage has strained the ability of nonprofit organizations to provide essential services throughout Vermont and meet growing needs.

That’s why, at the request of a growing number of nonprofits, Common Good Vermont is launching a statewide survey to gauge nonprofits’ experience with government contracts. and the extent of the problem. Nonprofits will be invited to identify challenges they have encountered, resulting impacts on service delivery, and policy solutions they would like to see.

Common Good Vermont Director Morgan Webster explains, “Nonprofits are vital lifelines for Vermonters and vulnerable communities. This survey will provide critical information and data to help guide how we address the growing service gaps and workforce challenges in our sector. We encourage all nonprofit organizations that have or have considered applying for state or federal funding to complete this survey. »
