Actions By Trump Administration To Have Local Impacts For Seniors
Recent action by the Trump administration will have some local impacts on senior citizens. President Trump recently announced cuts to a program that provides some funding toward Meals on Wheels programs. Reports have varied on the exact amount of the impact, but we do know it will have some impact locally. We talked to Annie Boyce with Common Ground Senior Services, which provides meals on wheels to seniors in Amador and Calaveras Counties. Boyce says the announcement will definitely impact them. Along with funding for meals, it will also impact the SERS program, which hires people 55 years or older to do part-time work. Common Ground has 3 people in this program who transport the meals to seniors.
