From the summary:
This report documents how the recession continues to affect state programs for older individuals and adults with physical disabilities. States have used many administrative tools to curtail expenditures. At the same time, demand for publicly funded services has grown, and resources–including staff–are stretched thin, according to this new 50-state study. Specifically, 31 states cut aging and disability services programs (non-Medicaid) in FY 2010, and 28 states were expecting to cut these programs in FY 2011.
