A new webpage launched today on the Frederick County Government website – www.FrederickCountyMD.gov/FederalFurlough – provides information and links to resources available for federal employees affected by the current government shutdown.
“An estimated 4,000 Frederick County residents have been furloughed by the federal government’s partial shutdown. I know this is causing great stress for many families in our community,” County Executive Jan Gardner said. “Fortunately, we are blessed to live in a county that truly comes together to care for our neighbors in need. Resources are available to help during this difficult time. If you or someone you know is struggling as a result of the shutdown, the information on the county website may help until the federal government is fully reopened.”
