NBC CT: Nonprofits Struggling, Looking for a State Budget

Nonprofit organizations in Connecticut that depend on funding from the state to operate say they need to see a proposal soon or risk the closure of some providers.

“We want to see a budget that adequately funds the services we provide,” said GianCarl Casa, who leads a coalition of nonprofit organizations.

The groups have seen funding cuts totaling tens of millions since the fiscal year ended in June, and the state has worked without a budget since.

That lack of a budget has led to some facility closures, furlough days, and service cuts for different organizations around the state that provide everything from mental health services to assistance for adults with developmental disabilities.
