Simulate Connecticut budget cut scenarios and explore the impacts statewide and locally.

The New England Public Policy Center at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston has developed a framework that distributes reductions in state aid based on underlying local fiscal health. Under this framework, a municipalities aid cuts are linked to their fiscal health, providing a more rational and equitable method of cutting aid compared to commonly used ad hoc or across-the-board cuts.

The CT Data Collaborative does not endorse cutting nonschool municipal aid. CTData endorses policy options based on research that seek solutions through an equitable approach.
