Sequester Set To Slash Disability Services

As we’ve discussed already on the blog, forced federal budget cuts triggered by a stalemate in Congressional negotiations over a new budget will hurt programs and services for those with disabilities.

Here’s more detail on how the sequester will play out in New York state, from Jewish Week staff writer Stewart Ain, who wrote an entire article on the subject.

Jewish Home Lifecare has received approval from the New York City Planning Commission to build a new, high-rise nursing home on Manhattan’s West 97th Street overcoming a major hurdle to the project.

Better known to New Yorkers as the Jewish Home and Hospital, its former name, the agency is planning to close its current nursing home in the borough, an outmoded, inefficient facility on West 106th Street, and relocate the operation in a new, 20-story high-rise by the spring of 2017.
