KHNS did receive cut to state grant


January 12, 2017

The CVN’s Dec. 22 wrap-up of 2016 was interesting to read but I’d

like to point out that KHNS, in fact, did not dodge state budget cuts – we

have lost 50 percent of our state grant over the last two years. From

an annual grant of $133,000 in 2015, we received $109,000 in 2016

and then $75,000 for FY17. For the first time in many years, KHNS

is in a position where we barely qualify for our federal grant due to

criteria that we receive a minimum of $300,000 from sources other

than the federal government. We are fortunate to have a strong and

loyal membership, but given our situation, it is even more critical that

information about KHNS be rigorously accurate. Thanks for including

us in the story and I am always available to fact check!

Kay Clements, General Manager, KHNS
