Strong Nonprofits for a Better New York
Nonprofit coalitions from across New York stand together in an historic coalition to call on the State to invest in a 3% increase on contracts and rates for the next 5 years for the survival of the sector.
Human service nonprofits provide vital services, including after-school programs, supportive housing, homeless services, job training, substance abuse disorder/addiction and mental health services to millions of New Yorkers annually.
Human services funding at the State has been slashed by 26% since 2008, resulting in rates lower than in 1980. The State continues to expect nonprofits to do more with less, but the sector cannot continue to provide quality services to communities without fair funding.
