Afterschool organizations across NYS called on Governor Cuomo to restore funding for the Advantage After School Program to $22.3 million. The FY18-19 Executive Budget proposal reduces funding for Advantage After School to $17.3 million which means many grants for afterschool programs cannot be renewed and many families will lose access to afterschool care.

Committee for Hispanic Children and Families students traveled to Albany to advocate for their Advantage After School program at P.S. 279 with the NYS Network for Youth Success.
