Nonprofits Lobby Lawmakers, Governor For Funds

Printer-friendly version

“The governor’s announcement of rescissions will close programs for some of the neediest individuals in our state, who have nowhere to turn,” Jeffrey Walter, interim CEO of the CT Community Nonprofit Alliance, said. “We urge the governor and the legislature to find alternative short term solutions to this year’s deficit, and work with us to craft long term structural changes that can keep the doors of community based nonprofits open to continue to serve half a million individuals in Connecticut.”

...

The governor’s budget, which he released in February, calls for $570 million in spending cuts, 72 percent of which would come from spending on human service programs.

The CT Community Nonprofit Alliance said the recommended cuts would reduce and or shut-down programs, leaving thousands of individuals who rely on life-sustaining services with nowhere to turn.
