Interview With New HRA Commissioner

The newly-appointed HRA commissioner, Robert Doar, is interviewed in this week's City Limits publication. In the interview, Doar states that his number one priority is enabling people to obtain better access to "publicly funded programs that can help low-income workers move up and have greater resources and feel as if they are making it." In response to a question about possible food stamp moves, Doar talks positively about his project with FoodChange to increase access outside of offices, but also remarks on the limits to the program due to income standards and federal rules.
