Pam Noor with the Central Oregon Council on Aging says there's a lot they don't know.

 

"Well, that's part of the problem.  We don't know what we're going to be dealing with. We don't know what the results will be, how much the cuts will be and how fast.  There's a very strong probability it will effect us.  When you serve 170-thousand meals a year, these cuts are going to be significant for us."

 

Statewide, the sequestration cuts are expected to mean a cut of 690-thousand dollars in federal funds for Oregon's senior nutrition programs.

 

Noor says if they have a ten percent cut, that would cut 90-thousand dollars from their budget this year.
