Schuyler Center’s First Look at the NYS 2018-19 Executive Budget

Schuyler Center’s First Look is an initial assessment of New York State’s 2018-19 proposed Executive Budget and how it advances priorities that improve the health and well-being of all New Yorkers, especially those living in poverty.  Schuyler Center staff will spend the coming days gaining a deeper understanding of the Executive Budget and its impacts, and working with lawmakers to achieve a final State budget that prioritizes investing in children and families, and reducing poverty and inequality.
