Tell Mayor Adams to fully reverse budget cuts to child care

Tell Mayor Adams: Reverse budget cuts to child care so families can afford to live in New York City! 

The cost of living in New York City is skyrocketing. Working families cannot afford their most basic needs – and the soaring cost of child care is driving families to their breaking point.

Right now, 80% of families citywide cannot afford child care or after-school programs. But Mayor Adams’ administration has proposed cutting $170 million for early childhood care in next year’s city budget, among other cuts to youth services. 

We cannot let that happen.

The strength of New York City’s economy relies on working parents, who depend on accessible and affordable child care. The Mayor’s cuts would decimate the city’s child care system, pushing even more parents to leave New York City for a lower cost of living elsewhere. Tell Mayor Adams today: Fully reverse budget cuts to child care so working families aren’t forced to flee New York City!
