On October 16, Rockland County Executive Ed Day submitted his first budget proposal that eliminates 100% of the funding that contract agencies (non-profits) receive from the county. The Rockland County Legislature will vote on the budget on December 4.
Full disclosure: I am a member of the board of the Nyack Center, that received $49,000 in his predecessors’ last budget. That role has given me insight into some of the Nyack Center programs that these cuts would jeopardize. I hope that when you learn more, you’ll help us spread the message that Rockland non-profits matter.
