Campaign for Children Responds to City’s Preliminary Budget for Fiscal Year ‘23

New York: February 17, 2022 – The Campaign for Children applauds steps taken in Mayor Adams’ Preliminary Budget to lift family incomes and connect youth to employment – including deepening the Earned Income Tax Credit, expanding and baselining resources for Fair Fares, and making permanent a dramatic expansion of summer youth employment. That said, the Mayor’s Preliminary Budget doesn’t address the dismantling of the comprehensive birth to five early education system and the disinvestment in year-round youth supports such as after-school and summer camp programs that occurred during the previous administration. We are hopeful the city will make necessary investments in these desperately-needed programs so that the children and families of our great city can truly thrive and recover from the pandemic.
