Congresswoman Maloney Secures $6.3M for NY-12 Community Organizations

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY-12) on July 13 announced she secured $6.3 million for NY-12 through community project funding requests in appropriations legislation.

“I was proud to submit community project funding requests for these deserving organizations. These groups are integral to our community, and I’m thrilled to be able to support their work through federal funding.

“The $6.3 million coming to NY-12 will fund healthcare and IT upgrades at The Floating Hospital, empower New Yorkers in their job searches through training and financial counseling, and reduce hunger through healthy cooking and nutrition education and by expanding meals and produce services to food-insecure New Yorkers. It will help provide tele-mental and tele-health services to children and families with complex medical, mental health, and developmental needs and bring much-needed stability and support to our small businesses and restaurants. These funds will also provide youth development programs, community programming, and workforce and entrepreneur training.

“The inclusion of these projects in the Appropriations Committee’s bills is the next step in the funding process. I will continue to fight for this funding as the bills move to the full Appropriations Committee, consideration on the House Floor, and negotiations with the Senate.”

Under guidelines issued by the Appropriations Committee, each Member of Congress was allowed to request funding for up to 10 projects in their community for fiscal year 2022. Eligible projects are restricted to a limited number of federal funding streams, and only state and local governments and eligible non-profit entities are permitted to receive this funding. All ten of the Congresswoman’s submitted projects were funded in the House versions of the appropriations legislation.

The $6,301,000 in funds projected to come to NY-12 are projects at:

  • The Floating Hospital: $925,000
  • AIDS Service Center of Lower Manhattan (The Alliance for Positive Change): $1,000,000
  • Common Threads: $50,000
  • New Alternatives for Children (NAC): $500,000
  • Manhattan Chamber of Commerce: $800,000
  • YMCA of Greater New York: $1,000,000
  • North Brooklyn Angels: $676,000
  • Queens Economic Development Corporation: $250,000
  • Urban Upbound: $800,000
  • Vision Urbana, Inc.: $300,000
