Press Release: Nonprofits Make Historic Gains in 2021 and 2022 General Assembly Sessions: https://t.co/AFZVosZNbj https://t.co/xEJtGfK9ik CTNPAlliance photo
The 2022 Legislative Session adjourned this evening with two major victories for The Alliance: First, the state budget passed Tuesday night increases funding for community nonprofits by more than $330 million over two years ago, June 30, 2021.
We thank the leaders of the state House and Senate for approving an FY23 state budget that includes desperately-needed funding increases. The budget includes $220.4 million in new money for nonprofit providers.

Read our full press release: https://t.co/KmKNSTto1P
The funding increase for community nonprofits in the budget agreement reached today will improve the lives of thousands of people across Connecticut who are served by nonprofits and the staff who deliver those services.

Read our statement: https://t.co/6q2LBy7Daj
As the Governor and legislative leaders meet today to negotiate a final state budget, including an 8% increase in funding for struggling community nonprofits who contract with the state, any reduction in that amount will have a dangerous impact on the state’s safety net.
Gian-Carl Casa said agencies don’t have good answers for the families being asked to wait for help.

“I don’t know how we can go back to people who depend on nonprofit services and say, ‘They [state officials] made other choices.’” https://t.co/r2Cl6iZZPw @CTMirror

The information provided at the Public Policy Meetings is unlike anything else you can get anywhere. The insight provided by [Alliance staff] are irreplaceable. You just don’t get that level of detail anywhere else.

Lynn Madden, President and CEO, APT Foundation

The Alliance has been instrumental in helping nonprofits have a unified voice. And for us specifically, the recent NEMT switch in provider has been almost catastrophic for our populations. The Alliance has done a good job advocating for us on that issue. I also think [they] understand the challenges related to the constraints on Medicaid billing and auditing processes and have done good advocacy around that. We feel supported.
