Public Policy & Advocacy

CT Community Nonprofit Alliance is the collective voice of community providers and nonprofits in Connecticut. We champion their causes and represent their interests at the Legislature, with the Administration, state agencies that contract with community providers, the media, and with other related advocacy organizations throughout the state. CT Community Nonprofit Alliance's voice helps protect private provider funding, advances new funding initiatives, support strategies for long-term change to the funding system, and advocates for policies that support the community provider system.

We also provide the advocacy tools and training so our clients can speak confidently in support of their own causes and get their voices heard. Together, we can ensure that the best interests of the citizens of Connecticut remain at the forefront, especially during these difficult economic times.
