This sing basically says it all.
Both Housing (HUD) and Special Programs like the one mentioned in the sign are having a difficult time keeping up.
I keep hearing things on that the economy is getting better.
a person at Longivew housing said and I Quote " We Have been hard hit with people whose hours have been cut and this is the reason why we had to lower the amount we can pay out to help those on HUD"
And Now the sign that reads " Due to Substantial Decrease in Federal LIHEAP Funding at CAP, "Crisis Clients " (those with Shut Off Notices will NOT be awarded LIHEAP Funds this year.
This is starting to look more like entering into a depression.
I am sick and tired of hearing how well the economy is doing when in essences it is failing and failing fast.
Gone are the "Pretty Pictures".
Any one in an apartment building that can not afford to keep there power on could get evicted even if they have been paying there rent. If it is so caused that the debt causes a lean to be placed on the building.
Also for those that can no longer afford this "luxury", the can have there power turned off.
I for see in the future that people will be purchasing there own generators, or even possibly running gas stoves and ovens thus dying of carbon monoxide poisoning.
And it is so stated that having power is not a need but it is a "Privilege" and that privilege can be taken away.
This is definitely a "Sign of the Times"
The question must be asked "Are we going in to a Depression"?
