Public Policy

CCPA is the collective voice of community providers in Connecticut. We champion community providers’ causes and represent their interests at the Legislature, with the Administration, state agencies that contract with community providers, the media, and with other related advocacy organizations throughout the state. CCPA’s respected voice has helped protect private provider funding, advance new funding initiatives, support strategies for long-term change to the funding system, and advocate for policies that support the community provider system.
