COVID-19 Response Resource Center

The Alliance is working to help nonprofits respond to the COVID-19 crisis and advocating at all levels of government for resources and for priority to be placed on essential nonprofit services. We will continue to communicate with our members and do what we can to help them through these troubling times. Below, please find a list of important resources from The Alliance, our national partners, state agencies and more. We will keep this section of our website up-to-date as information changes.

Alliance White Paper: Increase Funding for Community Nonprofits


The Alliance released a White Paper that explains why $461 million should be restored to nonprofit services, makes the case why the legislature must act now, and provides real examples from community nonprofits about what has been lost since 2007 – and what could be gained by a meaningful increase in funding. Connecticut’s budget outlook is the strongest it has been in over a decade and revenue is projected to continue to grow. That’s money that would be available to help people in need and provide for the staff who support them.
