High-Need Districts In NY May Apply For Funding For After-School Programs
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Tuesday announced $35 million in funding available for high-need school districts across the state to establish after-school programs. And there are seven districts in the Hudson Valley eligible to apply.
Cuomo says eligible school districts may partner with non-profit agencies to provide after-school programs. The initiative was announced in the governor’s 2017 state of the state address and funding is part of the 2017-2018 budget. The East Ramapo Central School District in Rockland County is eligible, as are the Fallsburg and Monticello districts in Sullivan County. The Poughkeepsie City School District and Yonkers City School District may apply as can the Kiryas Joel Village Union Free and Newburgh City School Districts in Orange County. The state expects to announce awards in the fall.
