Government shutdown effect on human services in Door County

The Door County Human Services Department will not be affected by the federal government shutdown if it is temporary. The federal government shutdown started on Saturday after a temporary budget was passed through the House of Representatives but not the Senate on Friday. According to Door County Human Services Department Head Cori McFarlane, services they provide have enough state and local funding to last without federal funding for at least a couple of months.



McFarlane says the department is not expecting the shutdown to last long enough that there would be an issue in providing any of their services. Door County Human Services gets funding for assistance programs like BadgerCare, food stamps, and aging services.
