New York, May 12, 2022 The Fedcap Group, the parent company for a growing network of top tier nonprofit agencies, today reported its operating and financial results for the first half fiscal 2022 ended March 31, 2022. Committed to providing services that positively impact the lives of people with barriers to economic well-being, The Fedcap Group is structured in four areas of practice: Education, Workforce Development, Health, and Economic Development and operates through 21 nonprofit subsidiaries, in the U.S., Canada and the UK.
Commenting on the results, Christine McMahon, Chief Executive Officer, said, “We delivered strong operating and financial results in the fiscal 2022 first half, achieving 96% of all contract deliverables and posting a 14.4% year-on-year revenue increase, primarily driven by organic growth. This performance reflects excellent execution on existing contracts and demonstrates how well our expertise and qualifications are aligned with the needs of funding agencies and consumers.
“In the first half, we ramped up the large, multi-year contract we won in the UK to provide support for those unemployed as a direct impact of the pandemic, and we continued to effectively manage our large Canadian workforce development contract. Our work for international clients accounted for approximately 30% of total first half revenues.
“In the US, we leveraged our fiscal 2021 acquisitions of APEX Technical School and Civic Hall and our strategic partnership with Paul Smith’s College to further expand our footprint in Education and Training, areas of high demand in today’s dynamic workplace.
“Additionally, we continued to expand our proprietary Single Stop Technology Platform—a screening tool that drives resources to individuals seeking to find work and/or stay in school, augmenting our supportive services for connecting people with jobs. In the first half of FY 2022, Single Stop served 25,127 people, connecting them to over $88 million in resources.”
In the first half of FY 2022, we continued to refine our work in our five key areas of focus: Children ages 0-8, youth transitioning from foster care, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, the previously incarcerated, and those on public assistance.
The Fedcap Group provides a diversified its revenue array of services to at-risk populations across four key practice areas.
Economic Development comprises business services operations that directly employ the populations we serve. A total of 1,800 people are employed in our commercial businesses—the majority of whom have disabilities or other employment barriers. 158 new jobs were added in first half FY 2022 in Total Facilities Management—our largest commercial enterprise. The average wage is approaching $40,000 annually.
Workforce Development continues to represent the area in which The Fedcap Group serves the largest number of individuals through a broad range of services, including the Single Stop platform. In the first half of FY 2022 we placed 10,685 people in jobs—nearly a 100% increase from the first half of FY 2021. 27% of new job placements earned $17.00 or more per hour.
Education represents growth in early childhood services provided through Easterseals and other programs assisting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities entering the workforce. We provided services to 3,123 children ages 0-8, designing and delivering an array of evidence-based practices that promote long term economic and social well-being. Our special education school located in New Jersey achieved 100% graduation rate for seniors for the past three years.
In the first half of FY 2022 we provided wellness services to 23,270 people (behavioral and physical health care, treatment for substance use disorders), with a view to helping them stabilize and gain employment.
In the first half of FY2022, ReServe—a subsidiary of The Fedcap Group—was awarded over $10MM in contracts to serve New York City neighborhoods most impacted by the pandemic including funding from NYC Health and Hospitals to provide vaccine education, enrollment, and community organizing, funding from NYC Fund for Public Health expand Community Health Worker teams in neighborhoods impacted by COVID-19 and long-standing racial/ethnic inequities, and to serve as a trusted messenger campaign for Public Health Solutions to promote COVID-19 vaccination among low-income pregnant women in New York City, primarily women of color. This work has impacted the lives of over 729,606 New Yorkers.

Operating expenses were $173.3 million, 88% of which represented direct program expenses.

At March 31, 2022, cash and marketable securities were $50.2 million compared with $34 million for the prior year.
“The first half of 2022 has been an exciting period for The Fedcap Group. We were able to achieve positive outcomes for an expanded universe of individuals, while building out our service platforms in the U.S. and internationally.
“Looking ahead, we expect to see substantial benefits from our APEX and Civic Hall acquisitions and partnership with Paul Smith’s College beginning later this fiscal year, including the launch of an innovative 80,000-square-foot digital training center will address the re-skilling and up-skilling of workers, supplying a trained workforce to meet the demand of our transforming economy and job landscape. In addition, we recently developed a new training curriculum in ‘green technologies,’ which will expand our ability to educate, prepare and train at-risk individuals for employment in the high-demand areas of clean energy and renewables.
