Federal, state, and local governments provide resources to nonprofits to deliver services on their behalf, and the main vehicles for this relationship are government contracts and grants. Contracts and grants processes present challenges, and governments and nonprofits - and ultimately their shared constituency - stand to gain by working together to improve the system. This brief describes how community-based organizations and a local government have come together to begin streamlining the process. Government representatives and nonprofit leaders in Montgomery County, Maryland, were interviewed to get a better understanding of contracting issues from both perspectives as well as solutions formulated by those involved.
