Federal Grant & Contract News for Nonprofits - November 2013

With the federal government back to work, we saw several important federal initiatives continue in earnest in November. Two of these initiatives will have a tremendous impact on nonprofits’ reliance on federal grant and contract funds – the President’s cybersecurity efforts under Executive Order 13636 issued this past February, as well as the President’s efforts to curb human trafficking, based on an Executive Order from September 2012.
