Expanding Medicaid in Ohio

Publication date: 
04/2013
If Ohio does not move forward with Medicaid expansion, thousands of Ohioans below 100 percent FPL will have no subsidized coverage assistance (as figure 2 indicates, those earning more than 100 percent FPL would be eligible for federal subsidies on health insurance exchanges). A substantial number of Ohioans, including more than 370,000 adults without dependent children by 2017, are projected to have no access to subsidized health coverage and will likely be uninsured.

Metro Monitor - March 2013

Publication date: 
03/2013
The Metro Monitor tracks the performance of the 100 largest U.S. metropolitan areas on four indicators: jobs, unemployment, output (gross product), and house prices. The analysis of these indicators is focused on change during three time periods: the recession, the recovery, and the combination of the two (recession + recovery). The determination of each time period is place- and indicator-specific, with the recession for a given indicator being defined by the period from its metro-specific "peak" to its "trough" and the recovery being defined by the period from its "trough" to the second quarter of 2014.

Seven Reasons Nonprofit Mergers Make Sense

Publication date: 
03/2013
Whenever we note (e.g., in Merging Wisely) that mergers are not necessarily a path to cost savings (at least not to immediate cost savings), we invariably get a few frustrated responses demanding, “Well then what’s the point?” Given the high-profile nature of mergers in the for-profit sector, where financial motivations are paramount and cost savings an immediate and important goal, this question is understandable. Mergers in the nonprofit sector are different, however. Nonprofits are mission-driven, and the ultimate goal of a merger – like any other strategy – is an enhanced ability to advance the mission.

Strong Year for Community Funds Included Megagifts fom Young Donors

Publication date: 
02/2013
Troubled for years by worries that baby boomers—and their children and grandchildren—move around the country so much that they don’t develop the strong neighborly ties that have helped keep community-fund coffers filled for nearly a century, fund leaders have been aggressively taking steps to court people born elsewhere who retire in their areas.

Publication date: 
02/2013
A sea change is underway in our nation’s approach to dealing with young people who get in trouble with the law. Although we still lead the industrialized world in the rate at which we lock up young people, the youth confinement rate in the United States is rapidly declining. In 2010 this rate reached a new 35-year low, with almost every state confining a smaller share of its youth population than a decade earlier.
