Mayor Bill de Blasio on Monday unveiled a $98.6-billion executive budget for fiscal 2022. The mayor said billions of dollars in federal stimulus and the city’s vaccination campaign are help propel New York City to recovery.
“The pandemic hit us hard but together we will fight back and drive a recovery in every neighborhood,” said de Blasio. “We are meeting the moment with direct investments in education, small businesses, open space and public health, and we are building up reserves to continue our strong fiscal foundation for the future.”
New York City experienced a growth of 100,000 jobs from December 2020 to March 2021, and expects to gain 400,000 more to reach a total of 4.5 million jobs by the end of 2021. The city’s tax revenue forecast exceeded expectations, with an increase of $1.37 billion in fiscal 2021 and $164 million in FY22, for a total of $1.5 billion.
