NYLPI joined coalition partners and advocates to call on Council Member Diana Ayala, Chair of the Committee on Mental Health, Addiction and Disabilities, to deliver budget justice and to restore the lost funding from the Mayor’s proposed budget.

The Mayor’s budget includes $10M in planned cuts for Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) teams, and 40% cuts to funding for the development of supportive and affordable housing. These cuts, if implemented, will have absolutely tragic results for people with mental health concerns, and for our City overall.

We need fundamental reform, and the time is now.
