Reductions in Current(F'Y 2013) Budget

Governor Patrick announced reductions(9-C cuts) in the current budget. This was due to recent decreases in revenue (from the expected revenues) and thus has placed the budget out of balance. Those areas which will impact elders include reductions for the Councils on Aging(Senior centers) and also for the Presciption Advantage Program(for medication support). There is no appeal or redress once these cuts are announced.
