Sequester - kind of like the Grinch when it comes to block grants

0 Comments | Posted

In the spirit of "keepin' it real" HHS sent letters to all 50 states detailing a sample of sequester cuts to local health and human services programs. Let's keep this simple and clear. If your program is relying on discretionary block grant funding you might want to be thinking about plan B.

We have a copy of the letter Deputy Secretary Bill Corr sent to Texas Gov. Rick Perry, notifying him of “key investments that will be affected in your state.” Here is a sample of some of the hits:

Like we said, hope you have a diversification plan for your funding if you fall under any of these categories. Now you get why we have been talking for months now about becoming more involved with your state block grant programs. You need to be at the decision-making table, folks.

Read the Texas letter and contact your Governors office and request a copy of the letter sent to them by HHS regarding sequestration cuts.
