Breaking Through the Boilerplate: New York City Human Services Contracts

Contracting with the government to provide social services can be an important source of revenue for nonprofits, but it also poses unique challenges. This webinar will review the general structure of the standard human services contract used by New York City agencies with nonprofit service providers and will provide an explanation of key contract terms. It will also cover certain risks involved with City contracting and possible ways to reduce or otherwise mitigate risks, with a focus on risks related to contract timing and payment. This webinar will focus specifically on the New York City Human Services Standard Contract.

Learning Objectives: Participants will understand the basic structure and key terms of the standard New York City human services contract and some of the risks involved with City contracting.

For nonprofits who currently have a human services contract with a New York City agency or those who anticipate entering into their first human services contract with a City agency.
