July 17, 2014 - 1:56pm A change in the IRS process for granting tax-exempt status could be a boon to nonprofit news. The new streamlined application process for becoming a 501(c)(3) might help nonprofit news startups — at least small ones — get off the ground more quickly. It took almost a year and a half for nonprofit news site Eye on Ohio to get its tax-exempt status approved by the IRS this spring. Launched in the fall of 2012 by former business reporter Lori Ashyk, the site aims to follow the model of many smaller nonprofit news startups: reporting some of the investigative stories and statewide news that have fallen by the wayside as daily newspapers have shrank. Ashyk knows the stories of other news nonprofits who’ve had difficulty navigating the tax-exemption process at the IRS and seen their applications disappear into a kind limbo. “Compared to some of the other news organizations, it’s not that bad,” she said. But there might be new relief for at least some journalists looking to get into the world of nonprofit news. This month, the IRS introduced a new application that makes getting tax-exempt status not much more complicated than ordering a pizza online. What was once a 26-page form has been... read more
July 17, 2014 - 1:15pm Calculator Tape A new HUD Office of Inspector General (OIG) audit published last week levied intense criticism at HUD’s implementation of public housing asset management. Focusing on HUD’s methodology and monitoring of asset management and other fees and central office cost centers – the cornerstone of HUD’s public housing asset management requirements - the OIG audit recommends the reversal of key provisions of asset management. HUD’s public housing asset management requirements represent a heavily negotiated, but also very controversial, overhaul of the way that public housing is operated and managed. With the publication of a final rule in 2005, housing authorities were required to transition to project-based based budgeting and to use a fee allocation system to support centralized office functions. Housing authorities were required to overhaul their financial systems and reporting mechanisms in order to comply. Housing authorities have now fully transitioned to the asset management model. Compliance with the asset management requirements was compulsory, but one “carrot” given to housing authorities to incentivize participation was the defederalization of fee income earned... read more
July 16, 2014 - 7:42pm Dear Cambridge, 50,000 messages are needed to be sent to the Senate in support of the Energize Africa Act, a new bill that will help 50 million people in Africa get electricity for the VERY FIRST TIME. Did you know that 70% of people in sub-Saharan Africa live without basic electricity? That's why I just joined ONE's Power Project, a campaign to help Africa bring electricity to 50 million people for the first time. But I need your help. Send an online message to your senators and tell them to support the Energize Africa Act (it's quick and easy). And if I get enough people to send messages, I can win a trip to Washington, DC to help deliver our messages in person. You can send a message knowing that you've used your voice to help transform the lives of millions.Support my campaign by sending letters here: http://bit.ly/1mVKFg2. Thanks for your support!

July 15, 2014 - 9:14pm New TV Studios For Springfield Public Access Programmers Public access television—famously skewered on Saturday Night Live and elsewhere—is no joke in one western Massachusetts When the newly formed Focus Springfield Community Television officially unveiled a brand new $1 million state-of-the-art programming facility on the ground floor of one of the city’s most historic buildings, dozens of local dignitaries took part in the grand opening. The region’s Congressman and the city’s mayor helped cut the ceremonial ribbon to open the 7,000- square foot center from which three public access channels originate. Congressman Richard Neal lauded public access television as a vital part of participatory democracy. " The emphasis is on the term community and that means hearing and airing all sorts of opinions. In the time of the 24-hour news cycle having longer conversations about events would be a good idea for all of us." The new public access television hub includes professional grade digital video and audio equipment, five editing suites, a modern control room, a “green room” for guests, and a studio with space to seat up to 100 people for performances, town hall-style meetings or... read more
