FROM NYN MEDIA:

* On this week’s podcast, Citizens’ Committee for Children Executive Director Jennifer March joins us for an Outcomes segment exploring the results of their recent Community Risk Ranking report, and Charles Archer, co-founder of the Thrive Network, joins us for a CEO Corner segment to talk about how he’s making sense of the current uncertainty in New York’s nonprofit sector, especially as it relates to health care and potential federal cuts.

 

TOP NEWS:

* Citing persistent problems of poverty, violence and poor health, Gov. Andrew Cuomo this morning announced a $1.4 billion plan to target central Brooklyn with an eight-pronged, holistic initiative to address those issues, The New York Times reports.

* Tax-exempt organizations, including hospitals, colleges as well as traditional charities, are increasingly paying leaders and employees more than $1 million, The Wall Street Journal writes.

* Nonprofit executive pay is a thorny question, which invokes popular views of charitable endeavors as involving individual self-sacrifice, and concerns include nonprofits’ budgeted overhead versus support for programs and services and the appropriate uses of other people’s money in the name of charity, Nonprofit Quarterly writes.

* As New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s homeless plan starts to take root in neighborhoods across the city, Crown Heights residents reflect the uphill battle as CORE Services Group plans to operate a new men’s shelter there, the Times writes.

* As the membership of the Municipal Art Society of New York revolts against their elected board of directors, a contentious meeting called by the members brought out all the tensions brewing inside the 123-year-old organization, The Architect's Newspaper writes.

* Thousands of women in the Big Apple and around the world went on strike Wednesday to honor International Women’s Day, with some ending up in handcuffs outside a Trump hotel in New York City, the New York Post reports.

* While very few of the higher education institutions closing each year are private nonprofit schools, the annual number of closing schools has tripled since the recession and is anticipated to remain stable or increase further, Nonprofit Quarterly writes.

* New city data shows that by at least one measure, black and Latino students in New York City are still extremely under-represented at the city's most competitive high schools, even as deep-seated segregation in the school system has grown into one of the most pressing education issues of de Blasio's tenure, Politico New York writes.

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION:

* The House GOP plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act could cost already cash-strapped New York City hospitals hundreds of millions of dollars and potentially blow a multibillion-dollar hole in future state budgets, the Daily News reports.

* A pending vote on class-action lawsuits, which provide a vehicle for bringing coordinated legal claims when large groups face such widespread wrongs, could determine the future of civil rights cases, according to The Marshall Project.

* President Donald Trump’s immigration policies faced a pair of new challenges in court on Wednesday, as the attorney general of Hawaii alleged Trump had violated the Constitution with his redrawn executive order banning travel from six predominantly Muslim countries, according to the Times.

 

IN DEPTH:

* The Independent Budget Office released its regular analysis of ways for City Hall to cut costs and increase revenue, which includes proposals that include making real estate sales between nonprofits and for-profits subject to the city’s property transfer tax, potentially netting the city $10 million annually.

* Curbed looks back at the White Rose Mission, a former settlement house established in 1897 on the Upper East Side to aid young African-American women who had recently arrived to the city.

* Facing deep infrastructure challenges and a hostile administration, the New York City Housing Authority is tallying the artistic side of public housing’s essential contribution to the city’s fabric, City Limits writes.
