NORWALK, Conn. – State Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff, D-Norwalk, has appointed Anthony DiLauro of Norwalk to the Council on Medical Assistance Program Oversight.
DiLauro is the executive director of the Human Services Council in Norwalk, a nonprofit organization that oversees a multitude of programs focusing on child advocacy, mentoring, alcohol and drug prevention, medical and behavioral healthcare services, and supportive housing.
“Anthony brings more than 20 years of experience in nonprofit management to the Council on Medical Assistance Program Oversight,” said Duff. “His experience working with community organizations here in Fairfield County and his understanding of the Medicaid Managed Care program will be of great value to the council.”
“It is an honor to be appointed by Sen. Duff and to be given the opportunity to serve on the council,” said DiLauro. “I look forward to using my experiences in the greater Norwalk community to assist the Department of Social Services in assessing the impact of Medicaid Managed Care.”
The Council on Medical Assistance Program was established under state law as a collaborative body consisting of legislators, Medicaid consumers, advocates, health care providers, insurers and state agencies to advise the Department of Social Services on the development of Connecticut's Medicaid Managed Care program and for legislative and public input to monitor the implementation of the program.
Previously, DiLauro was the executive director of Read to Grow, the only statewide early literacy organization in Connecticut, as well as Futures in Education Foundation and Endowment Fund, which provides scholarships, tuition assistance and program support for parochial elementary and secondary schools in New York City.
DiLauro was also once the executive director for the New York affiliate of Father Flanagan's Boys Town Inc., a charity that provides education and social services to needy families. During his 10-year tenure, Boys Town provided in-depth services to more than 5,000 at-risk youths in New York City and became one of New York’s premier providers to New York’s most at-risk youth.
DiLauro received his master's of social work degree from the University of Connecticut.
