A new program authorized by the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, will increase the capacity of a small number of intermediary grantees to work with small and midsize nonprofits in communities facing resource hardship challenges to develop and implement performance management systems. Grantees will provide recipients with organizational development assistance to establish procedures for measuring progress and improving performance towards intended outcomes leading to community impact. Awards will be made to eligible intermediary nonprofit organizations on a competitive basis.
For the purposes of this competition, the term nonprofit means an organization described in section 501(c)(3) and exempt from taxation under section 501(a) or in paragraph (1) or (2) of section 170 of the IRS code of 1986.
