Our mission is to be a resource to and advocate for community providers in advancing their delivery of high quality, efficient and effective health and human services.
In collaboration with the #PeopleMatter coalition, CCPA is organizing a Lobby Day on Wednesday, May 6, 2015 to advocate for the restoration of funding for community based services.
The stakes are incredibly high for CCPA members in this legislative session. From the perspective of field experts, the FY 2016 – 2017 proposed budget is the worst that Connecticut has seen in many years for providers of health and human services. It is critical that all CCPA members make it a priority to communicate this to legislators.
CCPA is pleased to release a study of provider costs (Prioritizing Community Based Services in CT), conducted by MTM Services, which details the funding shortfall providers are already facing. “Findings in this report show that chronic underfunding has taken a significant toll on community providers,” the Executive Summary states. Members, please feel free to draw talking points from the report and share these documents with your local legislators and other decision-makers during meetings.Read the Full Report
