FY 2022 New York State Budget

The FY 2022 Enacted Budget reimagines, rebuilds and renews New York in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

New York's strong fiscal management and relentless pursuit to secure the federal support that the pandemic demanded helped not only to balance our budget, but also make historic investments to reimagine, rebuild and renew New York in the aftermath of the worst health and economic crisis in a century.

This budget continues funding for the largest-in-the-nation $311 billion infrastructure plan, establishes a groundbreaking program to provide affordable internet for low-income families and enhances public safety through police reforms, all while continuing to provide relief to New Yorkers and small businesses as we recover from the pandemic.
