Bay State braces for impact of funding interruption, cuts

A major concern is lack of aid for the neediest

WASHINGTON — Carolyn Federoff has a busy weekend. As a legal adviser for the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, she is scrambling to process the paperwork for 27 apartments for low-income elderly residents in Winthrop.

If she doesn’t complete it by Tuesday, when a threatened shutdown of the federal government could begin, the housing project for senior citizens earning less than $13,000 a year could lose its funding. Not to mention that Federoff, along with 150 other HUD employees in Boston, could be furloughed without pay.
