funding

President Donald Trump's budget proposes eliminating public media funding.

Without this critical seed funding -- roughly $1.35 per American taxpayer per year -- some stations could be forced to downsize or find other ways to make ends meet. While the success of WRVO does not rest on funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting alone, we do rely on that funding for a portion of our budget. While we are committed to finding other ways to fund our service, if this funding were to disappear, the future is uncertain. And this goes farther than your local public radio station.

It’s a drizzly day in Cortland. Joyce Dowd is leaning against the bus stop shelter in front of the courthouse waiting for the number 5.

Today’s like every day – Dowd catches the 2:30 bus to head about 15 miles down the road.  

"My daughter lives at the trailer park there," says Dowd. "But I go to Cincinnatus because she works at the dollar store and I go out there and see her a lot.”
