A Game Changer for Thousands of Families

“Vital Brooklyn is a game changer for thousands of families, and I applaud Governor Cuomo for realizing the need to invest in the future of the community. This $1.4 billion investment will increase opportunities and improve the quality of life for New Yorkers and boost the economic prospects of the borough and the region, goals we share at CUNY. The support of educational opportunities, job growth, affordable housing and access to quality, nutritional food will contribute to a new era for Brooklyn. All New Yorkers deserve the opportunity to improve their quality of life and with the investment outlined by the Governor, that opportunity will increase measurably in Brooklyn. CUNY looks forward to being a key educational and economic development partner in this important initiative.”
