A Maine organization will receive nearly $70,000 less in federal outreach grant funding for the Affordable Care Act this year.
Steven Johndro of Western Maine Community Action, which contracts with partners throughout the state, says the cut isn’t as deep as he feared it would be, but it will hamper enrollment efforts.
“Last year our funding amount was $521,000. And this year the funding amount is $451,000,” he says. “Certainly it does reduce capacity in some instances, or in most instances.”
