Guilford County backlog puts federal money at risk

Posted: Updated:
GREENSBORO, N.C. - North Carolina is facing the loss of $88 million in federal money if Guilford County cannot clear a large backlog of unprocessed food stamp applications by Monday.
    
The News & Record of Greensboro reports (http://bit.ly/1mbaKFt) that county officials say there are as many as 8,100 approvals for continuing food stamp benefits awaiting action.
    
Guilford County Commissioner Ray Trapp said state officials met Wednesday with the local DSS board and County Manager Marty Lawing to tackle Guilford's backlog.
    
Trapp, who is also a member of the county Department of Social Services board, said officials  believe the county has a plan that will allow it to meet the deadline.
    
County DSS employees are working overtime alongside 20 workers sent by the state in order to meet the deadline.
