Budget cuts threaten vital programs and services offered by Community Action Agencies
Community Action Agencies (CAAs) across the state of Connecticut are reeling from the President’s FY 2014 budget that was released this week, which includes severe cuts to programs that serve Connecticut’s most vulnerable residents.

Susan G. Weinberger, one of 18 new board members at Norwalk Economic Opportunity Now, said she has a saying that her grandchildren are very familiar with: “The past is history; the future is a mystery; and the present is the present.”
“I’m less interested in the past and very interested in the present and moving forward because it’s our kids who will benefit,” Weinberger said in an interview this week. “I believe in the board and its mission. What I’m interested in is the future.”
