As Mayor Adams’ administration and the City Council continue working toward an adopted budget, CCC urges city leadership to support the following budget priorities to advance an equitable recovery for all New York City children, families, and communities.
Join CCC on Thursday, June 9th at 11:00am for our Virtual Rally for NYC Children. As Mayor Adams and the City Council work toward an adopted budget, we stand with our partners, youth advocates, caregivers, and staff to call for a budget that demonstrates a commitment to ensuring all children are healthy, housed, educated, and safe.
New York City is at a critical juncture as communities are working together to recover from the pandemic and rebuild. This is also a time of significant change, with new city and state leadership, as well as significant federal funding to support recovery. This moment requires bold leadership and long-lasting investments in children, families, and communities in order to build a foundation for resilience and recovery.
