State Budget Mitigation Plan

Last night, the General Assembly voted on a deficit mitigation plan that reduces the Health Center’s state appropriation by more than $4 million. With the associated fringe benefits lost, the reduction rises to $5.8 million. Additional Medicaid reductions will bring the total impact to close to $7 million.

We are made of tough stuff. Together, we will overcome this.

Thank you.
