The State We're In - Maine Highlighted in NPQ Article
Our state is profiled in the Winter 2009 edition of the Nonprofit Quarterly, entitled “Local Conditions Vary”. The profile is one segment in a section: “The state we’re in: How bad is it out there?” This section acknowledges the importance of state economies in the current health and future prospects of most U.S. nonprofits and provides a comparative overview of some of the key economic drivers in 14 different states.
The print issue is excellent but on the NPQ web site there is even more information. Each profiled state has its own page – Maine can be accessed here.
