A message from CAPIC's Executive DirectorNovember 20, 2014
I am both outraged and devastated by the news given to me today at 4:48 pm by DHCD that the Governor has exercised his 9c powers to eliminate CAPIC’s Special Earmark. The Earmark supports in full CAPIC’s Emergency Services Program. It funds three positions and provides emergency food, rental help, emergency shelter for dozens of area residents. What makes this action even more deplorable is that was made retroactive to July 1, 2014, nullifying funds that have already been spent on salary and services. We also have service commitments made that must now be withdrawn. This action eliminates our ability to respond to any housing related situations that occur on a daily basis. We have already spent $90,000.00, which now represents a deficit. Current obligations represent another several thousand dollars, which will be cancelled. It has been suggested that the new Administration may be more sensitive toward this dilemma and I believe that will likely be the case, however to maintain the staff and services while knowingly managing a deficit will require authorization from CAPIC’s Board and will also be a troubling problem if the new Administration is unable to restore funding.
I can’t help but wonder why this state government with multi-layers of bureaucrats cannot be more creative in developing solutions! I see the Governor has spent a king’s ransom on office remodeling, but strikes at the poor! Once again, take it out on those who can’t fight back…
We appreciate your support, caring and continued leadership.
