On July 8, the NC General Assembly concluded the main part of its 2020 legislative session, having implemented many policy solutions that will help North Carolina’s nonprofit sector respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We’ve pulled together a
summary of the key state policy developments
affecting nonprofits to help you keep track of policy developments and understand how they might affect your organization and the North Carolinians it serves.
Nonprofits’ advocacy made a difference on every policy issue identified in this summary. Many bills were introduced because of the recommendations of nonprofits. Others legislation was improved because nonprofits explained to policymakers the negative consequences that proposals might have on the communities they serve. In some cases, nonprofits helped stop bills that would have been detrimental to their missions.
We’ll continue to update you when legislators return for additional special sessions later this summer and fall. In the meantime, please
share your story
about how your nonprofit advocated on state policy issues this year so other nonprofits can learn from your great advocacy work!
