Every day between January and June 31st, my colleagues and I fought to restore funding cuts as well as secure increases in funding for our city at large. The Mayor first proposed an executive budget of $106.7 Billion and through our advocacy, we were able to increase the budget by $426 Million bringing us to an adopted budget of $107.1 Billion. This is an increase by $6 Billion dollars compared to last year’s city-wide budget, the largest city budget in NYC history. This budget is not perfect, but we have worked tirelessly and will continue to do so until all of the needs of our city are met. The City’s budget is not a static document but a working document which will change over the course of the fiscal year.

During each year’s budget process, the Council and its Members assign discretionary funds to not-for-profit organizations and agency initiatives to meet needs and fill gaps in City Agency services and local projects. Those allocations are published on “Schedule C.”

You can also check the Council’s online tracker for expense funding here or capital funding here to look up budget allocations.
