HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Nonprofit agencies that provide social services to hundreds of thousands of Connecticut residents are looking to the governor and state lawmakers to protect the state funding they rely upon.

The Connecticut Community Providers Association, which represents 120 member agencies, is unveiling their legislative priorities on Wednesday.

Alyssa Goduti, the group’s president for public policy, says her members understand the state is facing difficult fiscal times.

She says resources in the system are not always managed effectively and savings can be found to help provide services to everyone from the elderly to children.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has appointed former state Rep. Deborah Heinrich, to a new cabinet position where she’ll advocate for the nonprofit agencies.
