Meeting History

Aug 21, 2017 4:30 PM  Health and Human Services Committee Regular Meeting

Ms. Holmes explained that all Office for the Aging county offices statewide had funding cuts in the NY Connects program. She had anticipated there would be cuts made to this program and budgeted very conservatively, but the cuts were more than expected. The decrease in funding this year and the projected cut for next year has made it necessary to reclass a position from Long Term Care Specialist to Information Aide at a much lower salary. That has taken place in the past few months.
