State and Local Funding Program

The Human Services Coalition of Tompkins County is hosting a forum, "Outlook for 2009 State and Local Funding", on Thursday July 17th from 1-3pm at the Tompkins County Public Library in Ithaca. Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton, Tompkins County Legislature Chair Michael Koplinka-Loehr, Budget and Capital Committee Chair Nathan Shinagawa, County Administrator Steve Whicher, and George P. Ferrari, Jr. the Executive Director of the Community Foundation of Tompkins County will be facilitating the event.

This is an interesting and timely forum, especially with the funding challenges ahead. Perhaps the group would like to explore the possibility of holding a program with a similar focus in the future.
