I heard recently that there was a huge backlog of SNAP recipients that had not received their reviews. Charleston dropped that ball.

The problem they have getting knowledgeable workers is the low pay and they are required to have collage degrees? The current staff is doing what they can with what they got.

DHHR as a whole needs completely revamped.

I'm all in favor of the strike. I'm tired of paying for these people. Let this strike go on for years.

Charleston is where all of the reviews are scheduled and letters sent out. But very recently, more than 5000 recipients received letters advising their SNAP benefits were being discontinued due to missed appointments [that were never scheduled].

The local offices handle making these calls, but Charleston is responsible for making sure these appointments have been in fact been scheduled.

The Department runs away from me every time I apply to be an eligiblity worker due to a motor-function disability that they say slows me down. Good Luck to the workers. I know that in the past Region 4 (the Region that includes Fayette County) was said to be carrying about 1,000 poverty-level cases (mostly people who had been sanctioned - translation: people you don't have to do anything for) to keep from losing workers.
