(Continued)

“There are a lot of really good educational services here, and there always have been,” Maskin said. 

Building Healthy Families, The Children’s Center and Universal Pre-Kindergarten are a few of the other educational services provided in Otsego County for low-income families.

Maskin said questions remain about if and how current events will affect the services provided to low-income individuals.

“Are federal unemployment benefits going to be extended?” Maskin said. “Will the Farm Bill cut food stamps? These are all things to keep in mind when thinking about the future of poverty in the county.”
