$12 Million Dollars Announced by Hochul to Fund Family Opportunity Centers


Yesterday, New York Governor Kathy Hochul awarded grants totaling $12 million dollars through February 28th, 2026 to help fund family opportunity centers. The centers are community based or school based that have programs to provide services that will strengthen families and improve safety for children and families.

“Families are in need of community-based services that support parents and caregivers in raising healthy and happy children and reduce the stress that often leads to a decrease in the entire family’s well-being,” Governor Hochul said. “I am proud to fund family opportunity centers, which are proven programs that support diverse families across New York State, and we will continue to take concrete actions to support families and help reduce child abuse and neglect, strengthen family stability, and enhance child development.”
