BILL NUMBER:S7340

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 549 of the laws of 2013
amending the executive law and other laws relating to reform of
charitable organizations, in relation to providing that the state
shall develop certain procedures for the New York state grants gateway

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To ensure that nonprofits who are
registered with the NYS Grants Gateway are not disqualified or
declared ineligible during the time when they are amending their
applications or other required legal documents to conform with the
provisions of the Non-profit Revitalization Act of 2013.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section one would require the state to
develop procedures to ensure that any nonprofit that is pre-qualified
or registered with the Grants Gateway and that has submitted changes
to their prequalification application to the state by January 1, 2015
will not be disqualified, suspended or prohibited from applying for or
receiving state grants or contracts until such amendments have been
disapproved.

Section two states that this act shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION: In 2013, the State established a NYS Grants Gateway to
simplify and streamline the process for nonprofits to apply for state
grants and contracts. The nonprofits that are currently pre-qualified
and registered with the Gateway have expressed concerns to the State
Legislature over their ability to apply for, receive or renew state
grants and contracts pending approval of these amendments.

This bill would prohibit the state from disqualifying any
pre-qualified nonprofit from apply for or receiving state grants and
contracts until the amendments are disapproved.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
