Every nonprofit can and should get involved in advocacy to help advance its mission. Advocacy shapes the public debate about issues that affect nonprofits. It’s the number one way nonprofits can focus attention on the issues, and bring about real change. With the right tools and information, you’ll see how you can make advocacy work for your organization and your community.


The Office of Management and Budget has released the new guidance for federal grants.  The changes include:

  • 15% de minimis rate for indirect costs (overhead)

  • Audit threshold is set at $1 million for a single subject audit

  • Notice of Funding Opportunities (NOFOs) will be simplified with basic information at the top of the announcement

  • Up front payments when financial and written procedures are met; reimbursement payments if those requirements are not met

For additional information, see the summary by the National Council of Nonprofits.


Eighty percent of laws and policies affecting nonprofits are created at the state level.

The Governor called a special session for July 18, 2024. The focus will be public safety protections.

The 2024 legislative session ended on February 15, 2024. See the list of signed legislation.

Much of the work happens during the interim. Check the NM legislative website for information about the interim committees and their schedules.
