Governor Hochul has announced over $46-million-in funding will be available for a summer jobs program to help disadvantaged youth.

The program introduces young New Yorkers from low-income families into the labor market so they can develop useful skills by working at places like parks, summer camps and nursing homes. In order to be eligible, young people must be between the ages of 14 and 20 years old and have a household income below 200% of the federal poverty level. Anyone who is interested in taking part in the program can sign up at their local department of social services.
