On April 25, 2019, Mayor de Blasio released his $92.5 billion Executive Budget for Fiscal Year 2020, which begins July 1, 2019.
Citizens’ Committee for Children (CCC) appreciates the de Blasio Administration’s efforts to make New York City a fairer and more equitable City to all who live in the five boroughs. While the Executive Budget takes some steps toward these ends, we believe that the administration and the City budget must go further to achieve these goals, and should include: creating salary parity for early education teachers, additional investments in reducing and preventing family homelessness, promoting the well-being of children and families who are homeless, supporting the nutritional needs of students, creating universal after-school for elementary school students, and ensuring all children participating in after-school programs can participate in summer camp programming.
