“The Executive Budget proposes critical investments that will improve the well-being of New York City’s children and families, including increasing the number of shelter beds for runway and homeless youth, adding 362 staff to ACS to help keep children safe, creating a new rental subsidy program for working families, ensuring summer youth employment funding incorporates the recent minimum wage increase, and ensuring all 4-year-olds have pre-school and middle school students have after-school programs. The future of New York City looks brighter today and we are incredibly grateful that the Administration has taken critical steps to ensure NYC’s children are healthy, housed, educated and safe,” said Jennifer March, Executive Director of Citizens’ Committee for Children of New York.
