Highlights from the Proposed Rochester City Budget 2024-2025

The Children’s Agenda has reviewed the City of Rochester’s proposed 2024-2025 budget to make recommendations on the best use of City funds to support children locally. We applaud the efforts of the Mayor and City Council to uplift children in a myriad of ways, and many more dollars impact children in this budget than we will mention here. At the same time, based on our understanding of children’s needs, including our polling of parents and input from our VIP (Very Invested Parents) parent leaders, we want to sharpen the City’s focus so there is potential for the greatest impact.

The Children’s Agenda offers this review of the proposed 2022 County budget and its impact on children and youth at a time of uncertainty. We join with community leaders and residents in calling for an inclusive and equitable recovery that does not simply fill gaps created by the pandemic, or even the decades of child poverty and racism in Monroe County. Instead, our recovery efforts must shift resources to create a new roadmap for the future. We look forward to 2022 with hope. Crises create opportunities, and we see many opportunities for Monroe County’s children in the year ahead and beyond.
