“Connecticut is indeed facing massive fiscal difficulties, but the budget released today will leave some people without essential care.

“The Alliance appreciates that Governor Malloy has recommended more structural change in the delivery of human services, shifting several more expensive state-run programs into the nonprofit sector. But the conversions must be accompanied by a reinvestment in the community programs that will have to absorb additional clients.

“We continue to urge the Governor and lawmakers to incorporate structural change in the budget, and to use the resulting savings to prevent further cuts to human services and support programs that help people in every community.”
