About the CPI Steering Committee:
The Community Provider Initiative (CPI) Steering Committee, serves as the Association's Public Policy Committee. Executive Directors representing each Division as well as those interested in government and public relations are encouraged to participate.
The Community Provider Initiative (CPI) is a focused and visible grassroots effort to enhance services and supports for people with disabilities and significant needs served by community provider organizations. Through this media and public relations campaign, CCPA has worked to build public and policy maker support for Connecticut’s community providers.
The initial goal was to create an environment in which community providers were allocated more funds from state government. The long-term goal is to develop support for significant structural changes in the way in which government funds and contracts with private providers.
The Initiative has sponsored activities including television advertisements, postcard campaigns, press conferences, Capitol rallies and newspaper advertisements.
