Patch: Thousands Coming To Forest Hills From NYC's 2022 Budget
Patch: Thousands Coming To Forest Hills From NYC's 2022 Budget | July 2021: The record-high $99 billion budget passed by the City Council last week includes millions of dollars flowing to Forest Hills.
Billed as a "recovery budget" by Mayor Bill de Blasio and Council Speaker Corey Johnson, the spending package for the 2022 fiscal year — which starts Oct. 1 of this year — was bolstered by billions of dollars in federal stimulus funds.
In addition to major citywide items, like $4 million for CUNY scholarships, the budget also includes smaller neighborhood funding allocated by Forest Hills's Council member, Karen Koslowitz.
$50,000 to the LGBT Network to provide general operating support for the Queens LGBT Center.
$50,000 to Queens Community House, Inc. to provide young adults with work-readiness training certification, and job placement services in the food sector.
