The Children’s Agenda offers this summary of provisions for children that were included in the New York state budget enacted in April 2022. The budget made great strides forward for children, especially in making child care affordable and accessible for more New York families and stabilizing the child care workforce. However, there is more work to be done.
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.
