Gate money for Connecticut:
Inmates who served 24 continuous months and are released without supervision may be eligible for up to $50 in gate money. Facility administrators have discretion to deny gate money to "disciplinary or security problem inmates." Inmates with savings of $50 or more are not eligible. Those with less are eligible for the difference between their balance and $50. Transportation assistance is on a case-by-case basis.
