City expands NYC Kids RISE college savings initiative following western Queens pilot program

The city is launching an expansion of the community-driven NYC Kids RISE Save for College Program that had its genesis in the schools of western Queens over the past decade.

Starting this year, every kindergartener enrolled in a New York City public school will have access to an NYC Scholarship account, with $100 invested toward their future education and up to $200 in rewards.
