EXPLORE ALL CATEGORIES OF NEW YORK CITY'S FEDERAL GRANTS

The City’s FY 2020 budget of $95.1 billion relied on $9.4 billion in federal aid – equal to nearly one out of every 10 dollars the City spends – most of which supports services for low- to middle-income residents and are highly effective in reducing hardship, food insufficiency, and unmet medical needs.

From FY 2010 to FY 2020, federal grants have fallen by $2.0 billion (23 percent) after adjusting for inflation, driven by the decline of education ($1.6 billion, or 48 percent), social services ($726 million, or 17 percent), environmental protection ($22 million, or 89 percent), health ($1 million, or less than 1 percent), and transportation grants ($2 million, 2 percent).
