Analysis of the Proposed 2018 Monroe County Budget
We analyze annual budgets to ensure public expenditures map to what’s effective and what does the most good. With no affiliation with or funding from government or children’s services providers, we look at the impact of proposed funding plans on kids and families in the City of Rochester, Monroe County, and greater New York State. We look out for taxpayers, making sure that expenditures are for evidence-based preventive programs that work—not expensive, remedial, or ineffective programs. The proposed 2018 Monroe County budget includes notable progress for children and youth. In this report, we provide recommendations and commendations for the County and important findings from our review of the 2018 Proposed budget.
