With the job market still weak and higher education growing more expensive, young people in Massachusetts today face some significant challenges. The Youth Empowerment programs that we fund through our state budget help young people find jobs, break from cycles of violence, and build careers.
Whereas the Governor's budget would increase support for these programs that help young people build a strong future for themselves, the House Ways & Means proposal includes significant funding cuts.
The level of support envisioned by the House Ways & Means plan is 50% below the current funding level.
|The Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center (MassBudget) produces policy research, analysis, and data-driven recommendations focused on improving the lives of low- and middle-income children and adults, strengthening our state's economy, and enhancing the quality of life in Massachusetts. |
