Governor increases investment in CUNY’s operations

York College applauds the increased investment in CUNY’s operations and the continued commitment to the University’s critical capital needs reflected in Governor Cuomo’s budget.

By raising the income-eligibility cap for the Excelsior Scholarship, increasing support for opportunity programs and making more community college students eligible for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, the Governor’s budget moves us closer to a future in which quality higher education is accessible to all low- and middle-income New Yorkers at no cost.

We thank Governor Cuomo for his continued support of high-quality public higher education in New York.
