Dear Students, Colleagues, and Supporters:
In Governor Hochul’s proposed Executive Budget for 2024-2025, CSTEP and STEP Program funding has been cut by 3%. A reduction in funding is unacceptable!
We are requesting a restoration of the Governor's reduction and for a 20% increase.
The Governor and our statewide legislators need to hear from CSTEP and STEP students, their families, and our supporters. CSTEP and STEP are highly effective and efficient models that support, retain, and produce NYS’ future STEM, health, and licensed professionals.
Please join this email letter-writing campaign to stand up for CSTEP and STEP! Our programs need additional funding, not less,
Thank you for your continued support.
