CCC’s Summary of the State FY 2011-2012 Adopted Budget (As Compared to CCC’s State Budget Priorities)

Published March, 2011

The New York State Fiscal Year 2011-2012 Adopted Budget includes a $10 billion reduction in spending, much of which is borne by New York’s children.

Despite the spending reductions being profound, there are several critical policy areas that were ameliorated in the final budget, including:

  • The Primary Prevention Incentive Program (PPIP), that would have cut funding for many youth services and home visiting programs, was rejected.
  • Local detention and alternatives to detention and incarceration were funded with $76.3 million in state matching funds and an additional $8.2 million is available for ATD/ATI programs.
  • The State will be reducing its juvenile justice placement facility capacity by 376 beds and the budget provides for 60 days notice to close a facility, rather than the 12-month notice currently in law.
  • The proposal to enact a full family sanction for public assistance cases was rejected.
  • The 10% across the board cut to Early Intervention services was reduced to a 5% percent reduction.
  • The State’s proposed cut of $15.5 million for the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) was fully restored.

CCC’s Summary of the State FY2011-2012 Adopted Budget provides a full analysis how CCC’s budget and legislative priorities fared.
