The Needs Assessment Unit is providing assistance to almost five-hundred fewer families than it did the previous year. That’s according to the latest data from the ESO’s recently released compendium of statistics.
The latest figures are for the 2014-15 fiscal year, and show big drops in several areas of assistance.

Families receiving assistance fell to its lowest number since 2010, when the Department of Children and Family Services still held responsibility for public assistance cases. Food vouchers dropped by 300 families, with electricity assistance and supplemental assistance also seeing substantial drops.

A few more families got help with rent, water, and propane bills however.

As for schoolchildren, individual assistance for school lunches, uniforms, and preschool assistance all saw dramatic decreases.
