New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced last week that $21-million in funding would be awarded to 15 Youth Assertive Treatment teams serving children ranging in age from 10 to 21 and their families.

Hochul says New York is the first in the nation to enact the Youth ACT teams that work with at-risk young people to get treatment and to support their recovery. The Children’s Home of the Wyoming Conference in Broome County is part of the program along with the Hillside program serving Chenango and Cortland counties and Onondaga Case Management in Onondaga County in Central New York.
