All nonprofits qualify for LRAP?

Postby arvcondor » Mon May 09, 2011 2:35 am

Want to nail this down before I structure my pursuits around something I'm mistaken over:

http://www.law.temple.edu/pages/Prospec ... CCRAA.aspx

The current definition of public service jobs is very broad. Although it is subject to change in the future, the actual CCRA text defines public service jobs as " a full-time job in emergency management, government, military service, public safety, law enforcement, public health, public education (including early childhood education), social work in a public child or family service agency, public interest law services (including prosecution or public defense or legal advocacy in low income communities at a nonprofit organization), public child care, public service for individuals with disabilities, public service for the elderly, public library sciences and other school-based services, or at an organization that is described in section 501(c)(3) or the Internal Revenue Code of 986 and exempt for taxation under section 501(a) of the code; or teaching as a full-time faculty member at a Tribal College or University and other faculty teaching in high-needs areas as determined by the Secretary."


That means any nonprofit will qualify you, correct?

edit: Excluding those with significant lobbying interests.

It should work. What are you thinking of exactly? Make sure to check your prospective employment against IBR regs if you want to use that

I have a couple ideas in mind. One is doing something along the lines of what this woman does, though not necessarily in this capacity: --LinkRemoved--

The other is possibly trying to do something with this group: http://www.pidc-pa.org/. Though I think since they're affiliated with the government, they qualify regardless of this question.

Sounds cool. I see she has a JD, but I'm a little unclear on how the job is law-related?

I'm not quite sure, but I'm getting in touch with her to find out how she went from BU to her current job, and how the JD enabled that. Anyone who's able to make unconventional use of a JD interests me.
