Letter To Governor Cuomo Regarding Budget Cuts to Education Funding

Testimony & Public Comments

January 27, 2021

CCC joined community leaders and other advocates representing schoolchildren and families to express deep concern regarding planned supplantation of state dollars using federal stimulus funds meant for localities for education and critical support services. The supplantation of $800 million in New York State education funding with stimulus funds, as well as other cost shifts and aid reductions, would limit the ability of New York City schools to meet the needs of students.
We urge Governor Cuomo to commit to provide all education stimulus funding to New York City and all localities to ensure that the burdens of this economic downturn aren’t placed on our most vulnerable.
