A Wilmington-based nonprofit wants to show state lawmakers in Delaware what a 20 percent reduction in funding looks like.
Ingleside Homes provides affordable housing and health care for the elderly in Delaware. Representing the nonprofit, Cathy Cessna is encouraging nonprofits statewide to keep a record of the "negative outcomes and impact" their agencies experience as a result of the General Assembly's 20 percent cut in grant money for fiscal year 2018.
Cessna wants to know things like how many people lost their jobs because of the cut; how many programs were dropped; how many elderly, mentally ill and children were not served as a result; how many deaths resulted in the loss of programs.
Once she has the information, Cessna, and others, have volunteered to collate the data and report the outcomes.
