(Denver Post) The fiscal cliff agreement passed late last night extends some much-needed benefits and tax breaks, but looming spending cuts leave minority and poverty-stricken communities in limbo.

Leaders in the nonprofit community praised the bill’s handling of some aspects like the charitable-giving tax deduction. But in other areas, they said they felt it failed to support them, and by extension, left poverty-stricken Americans who depend on their services in a state of flux.
