Please provide additional support for CUNY

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am writing to ask that the Higher Education Budget Conference Committee support the $205 per FTE increase for community college base aid. Community college enrollments are soaring and this additional funding will provide the support services necessary to provide a quality education to community college students.

Additionally, we are seeking increased funding for capital projects. CUNY's average building is over 50 year's old. Many buildings need to be updated and there are many critical maintenance projects to be done throughout the University's campuses.

Also please ensure that CUNY LEADS and child care are included in the final budget.

Thank you.
