Delaware budget battle: What to do with extra $350 million in revenue

Printer-friendly version

Those comments are music to the ears of Sheila Bravo, CEO of the Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement.

The group represents hundreds of organizations that saw their state funding cut by a combined $8 million in the waning days of last year's legislative calendar. At that time, lawmakers needed to close a $400 million budget hole. Volunteer fire companies also were hit by the cuts.

"For a lot of our members, those cuts meant they had to eliminate hours or positions," she said. "We understand that legislators have to make tough decisions, but that doesn't mean the demand for services goes away. And when that demand isn't being met by nonprofits, it only increases costs for the government."
