Nonprofit Roundtable on COVID-19 Relief
The Nonprofit Association of the Midlands (NAM), a state association that represents the interests of nonprofits across Nebraska and southwest Iowa, is hosting a virtual roundtable to identify solutions and gather crucial input from nonprofits to address five key areas where there is an immediate need for COVID-19 relief funding through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). NAM has conducted multiple surveys on how nonprofits and their constituents have been impacted by COVID-19 and what relief is needed now. Along with the Nebraska Children and Families Foundations (NCFF) Community Playbooks, developed by coalitions across the state, the data clearly identifies five areas as the most needed and best areas to invest ARPA funds: early childhood, food insecurity, physical and mental health, housing and workforce. Individual experts and stakeholders who work in these fields, policy makers, government employees’ agencies and members of the public are invited to attend the roundtable via Zoom. Nonprofits are eligible to receive ARPA funds to pay for services and implement strategic investments in their communities. Transformational ideas collected at the roundtable will be presented to Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts and his staff, the Nebraska Legislature and other units of governments as they make decisions on how to use ARPA funds to address systemic challenges in Nebraska.
