The Center for Civil Society Studies at Johns Hopkins University released a report with updated estimates of nonprofit employment through March 2021. All fields of nonprofit activity experienced significant job gains during the month for the first time since August 2020, though these still left nonprofit jobs well below pre-COVID-19 levels.

The Center for Civil Society Studies at Johns Hopkins University released a report with updated estimates of nonprofit job losses through January 2021. The report also projects the amount of time it will require to return to pre-pandemic employment levels - currently at 2 years.

The National Council on Nonprofits is calling on all nonprofit organizations to sign onto a national letter from the nonprofit sector.  The letter to President Biden and Senate and House Leadership calls for federal action to provide targeted relief to the nonprofit sector, to strengthen charitable giving incentives, to provide full unemployment benefit reimbursement, and to allow for aid to state and local governments. The NH Center for Nonprofits urges nonprofit leaders to sign on. 

In a continuing effort to track the ongoing impact of the coronavirus pandemic on nonprofit employment, this report from the Center for Civil Society Studies documents estimates of nonprofit job losses through December 2020, as reflected in the December BLS Employment Situation Report. What these data reveal is a striking reversal of the admittedly tepid growth in nonprofit employment in the prior three months, leaving nonprofit employment still down by a conservatively-estimated nearly 930,000 jobs by the end of the year. The report then goes on to track the slow recovery of nonprofit jobs over the past several months and then to estimate the likely time to full recovery given the new information about vaccine availability and potentially energized federal attention promised by the incoming national administration.

The online portal required for the Governor's Office for Emergency Relief & Recovery Nonprofit Emergency Relief Fund and other CARES Act funds is now available.
