Print | Front Page | Email this story | Comments ()

NASHVILLE (AP) – A state program that helped 4,000 Tennesseans faced with sudden disabilities and life-threatening illnesses is being eliminated next July.

The $7.2 million Family Support Grant will be dropped after three years in existence because of state budget cuts.

According to WSMV-TV, every county in Tennessee has shared in grant assistance from the program (http://bit.ly/vZwkCK). The money is distributed by local nonprofit groups.

Tennessee is trying to look for federal dollars to help replace the money lost.
