“It is an enormous relief that the Governor has signed the budget and ended four months of debilitating uncertainty for Connecticut’s nonprofits. Our members have been underfunded for more than a decade. Since July 1, they have been operating under an executive order that closed down or reduced the scope and hours for many programs across the state that provide vital services for thousands of people. While this budget is not perfect, it supports many programs and provides a framework for moving forward.”
