First Nonprofit Group is proud to announce our new partnership with the Illinois Association of Housing Authorities (IAHA). IAHA strives to ensure the availability of decent, safe and sanitary affordable housing for all people in the State of Illinois through collaboration among its more than 100 housing authority members, including this issue’s Member Spotlight Feature: Springfield Housing Authority.
IAHA was formed in the early 1960s when its founding members recognized a growing need for a membership association where housing authorities could evaluate, educate, exchange ideas, and address their individual and collective needs. Today, IAHA provides numerous resources to its members, both in person and online, including various trainings, clinics and membership meetings held throughout the year.
IAHA joins our existing 29 association partners across the country on our mission to save nonprofit organizations and government entities money on their state unemployment tax (SUTA) costs. Our partnership comes at a crucial time for organizations in the State of Illinois. Since 2009, Illinois employer’s average SUTA cost, per employee, has increased 81%!
Randy McGill, 2nd Vice President of the IAHA (and Executive Director of Unemployment Savings Program member, the Kankakee County Housing Authority) explains how the Program has benefitted their organization: “Kankakee County Housing Authority has been in the First Nonprofit program since 2008 and it has saved thousands in unemployment fees that we paid to the State previously. They have served as a liaison for any claims that have come up and taken that responsibility off us. We are very pleased with the service they have provided and continue to provide.”
We look forward to helping our newest partner and its members save money on their State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) cost to free up funding that can be used in other areas of operation to help individuals and families find housing.

NYCON members who use First Nonprofit’s programs enjoy enduring savings and improved efficiency. Our association knows that success, because from the beginning, we achieved the same great benefits. Great savings, seamless technology, and responsive service. NYCON highly recommends First Nonprofit’s remarkable unemployment solutions.
It has been our sincere pleasure to maintain a strong, vibrant business partnership with First Nonprofit. We greatly admire their strong industry knowledge, technical expertise, constant professionalism, knowledgeable and dedicated staff. They are always extremely responsive, personable and provide us with the necessary guidance and recommendations on a numerous variety of employment scenarios. We are impressed with the accuracy of their employment decisions, integrity of their employees and efficiency of their claim handling. We greatly respect and value the consistent, impressive cost savings from the utilization of their outstanding services.
Because INCS advocates for the operating conditions that allow charter public schools to provide high quality public education, partnering with First Nonprofit was an easy decision. First Nonprofit’s unemployment programs provide our member schools two operating elements crucial to their ability to provide high quality public education: savings and budget certainty. Capable, committed teachers are the key to student success. By participating in the unemployment insurance savings plan, charter public schools gain peace of mind and are able to invest more money in their teachers.
Throughout our membership in the Unemployment Savings Program, First Nonprofit understood our demands, community dynamics, and the importance of seamless services; that allowed us to serve our constituents better.
