“I commend the governor for prioritizing the essential role of New York’s community colleges in strengthening the state’s economy and preparing a skilled workforce. The introduction of a performance-based enhancement above and beyond base-aid funding has tremendous potential for incentivizing important links between community colleges and employers throughout the state. Today’s announcement also sends a powerful signal to students and families that New York’s community colleges will continue to serve as an indispensable vehicle to educational advancement, economic mobility, and career growth.”
