NFSC’s New Focus on Small CBO Policy & Advocacy Support

The Neighborhood Family Services Coalition (NFSC) has announced a new focus on identifying, developing, and supporting partnerships between small community-based organizations (CBOs), the afterschool policy/advocacy sector, and NYC government. NFSC staff will work with a select group of small CBOs to assist and train them in building knowledge about current developments, opportunities, and trends in the public policy world and the youth development field; increase the visibility and success profiles of small CBOs throughout NFSC’s advocacy networks; and provide a voice for the unique challenges of smaller not-for-profit providers in implementing afterschool programs and other services through government contracts, which often require extensive expertise and staff capacity to execute. Selected CBOs are asked to designate a staff member to work closely with NFSC staff, attend monthly networking meetings, participate in advocacy events, attend meetings with City government officials, and serve as a liaison between NFSC and their CBO. Interested organizations should contact Gigi Li at or (212) 619-1656.
