With revenue sources shrinking, the City geared up for painful budget cuts for the 2013 fiscal year. These included a $53 million cut for childcare and a $21 million cut for youth services. Two coalitions—the New York City Youth Alliance and the Emergency Coalition to Save Child Care—joined forces to oppose these spending cuts, forming the Campaign for Children. Working together, the Campaign helped save after-school and early childhood programs for an estimated 47,000 children. Advocates are now developing long-term solutions to the annual budget battle for children and youth services and want to share their ideas.
