NYC finds $127 million for public school funding programs on the chopping block

A multi-million dollar school funding initiative brought together Mayor Eric Adams and Council Speaker Adrienne Adams on Tuesday as squabbling continues behind the scenes during budget negotiations.

The two elected leaders announced at P.S. 184, the Shuang Wen School on the Lower East Side, that $127 million in school funding will be made available for a variety of programs, including some that received funding during the COVID-19 crisis which is now due to expire.
