In mid-2020, the Wyoming State Legislature held a special session to decide how to spend COVID-19 pandemic relief funding from the federal CARES Act. They settled on $325 million for business grants, but as the proposal made its way through the legislative process, the proposed language did not specify if nonprofits qualified. The Wyoming Nonprofit Network led an advocacy effort to convince state representatives to include nonprofits in the funding, to help ensure stability in the charitable sector during the pandemic.

Sometimes we get so caught up in our day-to-day work that we don’t always make time to get out into the field to learn and see for ourselves. Earlier this year, our CEO, Kiran Ahuja and I hit the road and ventured to a part of our region that is personally new to us. The sole purpose of our trip was to learn and connect with grantmakers on the ground in Wyoming.

The effects of natural and manmade disasters have become more frequent, far-reaching and widespread. As a result, preserving the safety, security and prosperity of all parts of our society is becoming more challenging. Our nation’s traditional approach to managing the risks associated with these disasters relies heavily on the government. However, today’s changing reality is affecting all levels of government in their efforts to improve our resilience while grappling with the limitations of their capabilities. Even in small- and medium-sized disasters, which the government is generally effective at managing, significant access and service gaps still exist. In large-scale disasters or catastrophes, government resources and capabilities can be overwhelmed. In this call, Mike Riedy and Matt Cedar will provide an overview of the four phases of emergency management, differences between community recovery and individual recovery and suggest ways to support the long-term recovery group process, including why financial contributions are best.
