IN THE AFTERMATH OF FEGS — The collapse of the Federation Employment & Guidance Service a year ago sent shockwaves through the New York nonprofit world, with executives wondering who might be next. Its collapse must be seen against the backdrop of a crumbling industry that won’t survive without fundamental changes in reimbursement models and regulatory burdens, according to an exhaustive report from the Human Services Council. The report laid out three major problems with the industry and made eight recommendations, including reducing regulations, increasing reimbursement and warning providers to be more responsible and avoid contracts with the city or state that do not pay the full cost of services. http://politi.co/1mWoqcZ

ACROSS THE RIVER — As some municipalities begin a legal push challenging the tax exempt status of local nonprofit hospitals, legislators and hospitals say they’re waiting for guidance from Gov.

In the meantime, at least seven municipalities have filed complaints regarding omitted tax assessments from area nonprofit hospitals for 2014 and 2015 with the Tax Court of New Jersey.
