It took some twists and turns to get there, but thanks to the support of our members and friends and the entire parks community, the final NYS budget includes $90 million in state parks capital funding.
This infusion of money for repairs and restoration at New York’s state parks and historic sites will go far in continuing the revitalization of our magnificent state park system. With more than a $1 billion backlog in repairs, upgrades and improvements, this funding is crucial for the long-term viability of our state parks and historic sites.
We are grateful for the efforts of each and every one of you who reached out to your Senator urging that this critical capital funding for parks be part of the final state budget. Your voice was heard loud and clear in Albany. This vital funding for parks would not have happened without you– thank you!
