Funding cuts due to the sequestration go into effect Friday, and locally, some seniors could be the first to feel its effects.

 

Pamela Norr with the Central Oregon Council on Aging spoke with our news partner, News Channel 21, she says COCOA would take a big hit:  "The amount that sequestration would technically potentially cut to our programs locally would be huge. The money would only come out of the older Americans act funding, which we receive from the federal government; but a 10% cut to that would be significant for us."

 

Norr says those cuts could total about $700,000, mostly out of the nutrition assistance programs for seniors in Oregon.

 

She adds that the ripple effect from these cuts will be seen later on; such as taxpayers bearing the cost for medical care for seniors who become ill or need more care.
