On April 26, 2018, Mayor de Blasio released his Executive Budget proposals for Fiscal Year 2019. The $89.06 billion budget included a number of new investments aimed at making New York City a more fair and equitable City for all who live in the five boroughs. While the Executive Budget takes some steps toward this end, CCC believes that the administration and the City budget must go further to achieve these goals, and should include additional investments in reducing and preventing family homelessness, promoting the well-being of homeless children and their families, creating salary parity for early education teachers, creating universal after-school for elementary school students and ensuring all children participating in after-school programs can participate in summer camp programming.
CCC’s New York City Fiscal Year 2019 Executive Budget Summary details all of the proposals related to programs serving children, youth and families.
