DYCD’s Federal Grants Have Fallen by $45 Million
(58 Percent) Since FY 2010

DYCD’s federal grants have fallen by $45 million (58 percent) since FY 2010 after adjusting for inflation. This includes just one primary grant and four city-wide grants, collectively account for all of the agency’s federal funding.

Primary Grants (shown in chart below): DYCD’s only primary grant – The Community Service Block Grant (CSBG) –accounts for 42 percent of the agency’s federal grants and has fallen by $5 million (14 percent) since FY 2010 after adjusting for inflation. CSBG is distributed to local agencies to support a wide range of community-based activities to reduce poverty.

City-Wide Grants
: DYCD’s four city-wide grants account for 63 percent of the agency’s federal grants and have fallen by $39 million since FY 2010 after adjusting for inflation, driven by the decline of WIOA Youth Activities and CDBG. Read about DYCD’s city-wide grants.

DYCD Federal Funding – By Program Area

DYCD’s budget is divided into ten program areas, also known as budget functions. Each program area relies on a mix of funding sources and is uniquely vulnerable to budget cuts. For example, Community Development Programs — which supports funding for programs in low-income communities throughout New York City — relies on the largest sum of federal grants ($25 million), while Out-of-School Youth Programs (OSY) — which supports employment programs for youth aged 16-21 — relies on the largest share of federal grants (98 percent).
