Gov. Bev Perdue will not present a solution to the problem with funding for group homes for people with mental disabilities today, as she said she would on Monday.
Group home providers, residents, and their families are waiting anxiously for Perdue's announcement because thousands are in jeopardy of losing Medicaid money that helps pay for their lodging. The change comes Jan. 1.
"I think we are still examining all of our options," said Perdue spokeswoman Christine Mackey. The office will announce its move next week, she said.
