Mar 22, 2017 12:02 am
Bethany Bump reports in the Albany Times Union that 30 percent of the Meals on Wheels program in Rensselaer County and 19 percent in Albany County is paid for with federal money. President Donald Trump's initial budget announced last week would eliminate federal funds. Rensselaer County spokesperson Chris Meyer said, "I really don't want any seniors to wake up and read this and think these programs are in jeopardy.... We've made a committed effort over the years to maintain this program, and will do what we need to keep them intact."
