The Children’s Agenda offers this review of the proposed 2020 County budget and its impact on children and youth with two audiences in mind: County legislators who will vote on its proposals, and the new County administration who will have the opportunity to make changes in County policy and funding beyond 2020.
In this report, we provide priority recommendations and commendations for Monroe County’s 2020 Proposed Budget and for the County as it enters a new decade. We hope this review will move us toward our community’s shared goal of making Monroe County the best place in the state of New York to raise a family.
The Children’s Agenda advocates for effective policies and drives evidenced-based solutions for the health, education and success of children. We are especially committed to children who are vulnerable because of poverty, racism, health inequities and trauma.
