The brand new Connecticut budget, just passed in October 2017, is already in trouble. In the past, we know what this has meant: programs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities will be on the chopping block.
Your greatest ally to prevent these cuts is the Arc of Connecticut.
Just a few months ago, the proposed budget eliminated all Employment and Day Support funding for new graduates of the State’s education system, and all funding for Community First Choice (CFC).
The Arc of Connecticut’s advocacy was integral in eventually obtaining adequate funding for Employment and Day Supports and keeping the fledgling CFC program alive. We did what many thought was impossible.
But we cannot rest. Given the magnitude of the budget deficit, our work is just beginning. We need your help so that we can continue to fight for people with I/DD and their families. Your donation will make a difference.
