New Hampshire to Inform Those Who May Lose Services

CONCORD, N.H. -- State officials plan to tell people with developmental disabilities next month if they would lose their services under the state budget proposed by the House.
The budget significantly cuts spending on services for people with developmental disabilities, such as money to help make their homes accessible or to provide respite care that allows parents who are constantly with their children time to run errands or tend to other needs. Senate budget writers could insist on restoring some of the spending, but with little more than two months until the new fiscal year, state officials have already proposed tentative criteria to determine who would continue receiving services and who would be cut off.
