CCC’s New York City Fiscal Year 2012 Preliminary Budget Chart
Published February 2011
The New York City Preliminary Budget for Fiscal Year 2012 proposes to cut both $161.5 million in net reductions to human services for children and families and over 16,000 child care subsidies.
While we were pleased to see that the City’s revenue has been increasing and the Mayor was able to offset the anticipated loss of state funds for mandated services, CCC is very concerned that the Preliminary Budget cuts 2,900 preventive service slots, homemaking services, school based mental health centers and after school programs. In addition, the City is planning to eliminate over 16,000 child care subsidies for low-income working families.
CCC’s New York City Fiscal Year 2012 Preliminary Budget Chart details the effects the proposed budget cuts would have on children’s programs and services.
