Federal funds for 'at risk' kids programs likely to be reduced


WILLMAR -- Money for programs that help at-risk children will likely be cut this year as part of changes designed to create consistency in how states spend federal funds.

It's not known exactly what the dollar impact will be in Kandiyohi County, said Family Services director Larry Kleindl, but it's expected that about 31 percent of Minnesota's funding for the "Local Collaborative Time Study" programs will be cut.

Cuts to individual counties could be nearly 70 percent.
