Advocacy 2016

Public Policy

CT Community Nonprofit Alliance, Inc. 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.

Now, more than ever, it is critical that members, consumers, clients, and staff attend and testify at public hearings to secure funding for essential services they provide. For a public hearing schedule and talking points, click here.
