The new name Colonial funeral homes is a bit odd.
Its actually an acronym for the New Colony of the United States.
The new term is part of a new initiative by the state of Connecticut to promote diversity and inclusion, according to a press release from the Department of Business Development and Technology.
The announcement comes as the state grapples with a nationwide shortage of funeral homes, with only 1,857 operating across the state.
Connecticut is the only state that has not yet adopted the initiative, which was developed in response to a wave of mass killings in Connecticut in the wake of the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.
The move is part and parcel of the state’s efforts to attract more immigrants, and a key part of Gov.
Dannel Malloy’s re-election campaign.
The move is a response to the fact that Connecticut has about 1,800 foreign-born residents, according the department.
The state has about 4,300 foreign-owned businesses.
In addition, the state is also home to the largest number of immigrants in the country, according a report from the Pew Research Center.
The new names for the new types of funeral services, which are expected to be available in mid-2017, are: the New Colonial Funeral Home; the New Connecticut Funeral Homes; the Connecticut Funerals of Connecticut; and the Connecticut Colonial Funeraries of North America.
At the same time, Connecticut is making an effort to attract a new type of funeral home in its state.
It has a contract to build a new funeral home on the state Capitol grounds in Hartford and will open an office in Stamford by early 2018.
The state’s Department of Commerce and Economic Development is working with the state and several companies to create an identity for the “new Colonial” funeral home and provide services to all Americans.
