Public Policy & Advocacy

Giving momentum to nonprofit advocacy in Connecticut for three decades.

For more than 35 years, CT Nonprofits has been the voice of nonprofits at the State Capitol. We advocate on behalf of members and provide direct access to elected officials and policy decision makers. As part of membership, experienced lobbyists track and monitor bills and provide the latest updates.

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.
