Washington – As the budget crisis in Washington shows no sign of a quick resolution, a slew of health and social programs have either lost all federal money or are running out funds.
The administration of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has kept these programs running by using leftover federal funds or paying for them out of state money in the hopes of a future reimbursement from Washington.
