The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo
Governor of New York State
NYS State Capitol Building
Albany, NY 12224
We want to tell the Governor:
“Thank you for your leadership in supporting the growth of QUALITYstarsNY, New York’s Quality Rating and Improvement System for early childhood programs. High quality early childhood education is critical for the growth and development of New York’s children, and QUALITYstarsNY helps ensure that all programs have the resources and support they need to provide a high level of care and education. However, with only 5% of eligible early childhood programs currently able to participate, more funding is needed to expand support in high-needs communities across the state. Therefore, I ask that you increase New York State’s investment in QUALITYstarsNY by $9 million for a total of $14 million in the fiscal year 2022 Executive Budget.”
