Sequester Human Services

As many of the programs offered through the Mesa County Department of Human Services rely on both state and federal sources of money to get delivered to county residents, staff in the department are watching the results of sequester debate closely.

About $3.5 million of the department’s $22 million budget comes from Mesa County. The remaining $18.5 million comes from the state and the federal government, at about a 50-50 split, said Barbara Golden, director of fiscal operations and quality assurance with the county Department of Human Services.

While Golden said it’s too early to gauge whether there will be any long-term impacts if the sequester cuts come to be, a number of programs could be affected, including the senior meal service Gray Gourmet and programs through the Area Agency on Aging.
