Good News! The Governor reversed proposed cuts to the Department of Transitional Assistance’s Transitional Aid to Families with Dependent Children (TAFDC) program that had been part of his solution to closing an estimated $600 million revenue shortfall in the current fiscal year. Governor Patrick will restore $14 million to the program.
Nevertheless, the Statehouse event scheduled for Wed. January 12 will still take place with a focus on thanking the governor and the legislature and advocating for TAFDC in FY2011. High attendence at the event is still needed. To find out more about the event click here.
