The Green Thumb Program provides income-eligible elderly citizens with part-time employment in State agencies through the not-for-profit organization, Green Thumb Environmental Beautification, Inc. The 2009-10 Executive Budget recommends a General Fund appropriation of $2,831,000, a decrease of $1,038,000 from the funding level provided in 2008-09. This reduction is recommended because, as a savings measure, the Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation will no longer participate in the program.
