New York Association of Training and Employment Professionals (NYATEP)Advocacy Efforts - March 2024



The FY 2023-24 Enacted State Budget included a one-time income disregard for individuals whose income does not exceed the 200% federal poverty level (FPL) and completing an approved employment program can retain full public assistance benefits for six months for purposes of mitigating a benefits cliff. We are grateful for this progress and would like to advocate to ensure ALL New Yorkers can have an opportunity to utilize this disregard. To ensure this economic recovery is equitable and does not leave New Yorkers behind, we ask that the final budget includes the following items from the Senate One House Budget Proposal:

● The establishment of a task force to study fiscal benefit cliffs in New York state's Public Assistance Program and make recommendations to reduce and eliminate such fiscal cliffs and the $500,000 in funding for OTDA for expenses incurred for the study.

● Increase the income threshold to 400% from 200% of the Federal Poverty Level for the one-time, six-month earned income disregard for public assistance recipients who enter a job after completing an employment training program.
