July 16, 2019 – With the close of another busy New York City Council budget season, the law firm of Davidoff Hutcher & Citron is pleased to highlight the success of our not-for-profit clients in securing expense and capital funding from the New York City Council and the de Blasio Administration for the 2019 – 2020 Fiscal Year.
We also take this opportunity on behalf of our clients and the firm, to thank the New York City Council for again this year recognizing our clients for their outstanding accomplishments in improving the lives of New Yorkers. In particular, we thank Council Speaker, Corey Johnson, Finance Committee Chair Daniel Dromm, Capital Budget Sub-Committee Chair Vanessa Gibson; and Council Finance Division Director Latonia McKinney for their leadership to ensure the continued good work of our not-for-profit clients in all five boroughs of the City.
The funding provided by the Council for the ensuing fiscal year will play a pivotal role in expanding our not-for-profit clients’ reach and impact, particularly in communities where there continue to be a high need for supportive programming. We are pleased that in representing our clients in the budget process, DHC was able to share compelling stories of how their programs and activism continue to change for the better the lives of New Yorkers in need –creating positive change for individuals, their families, entire communities and the City as a whole.
Our not-for-profit clients provide a wide array of enrichment programs ranging from academics and workforce training to arts/culture and economic development. They include Center for Educational Innovation, Helen Keller Services, Junior Achievement of New York, National Black Theatre, Inc., SCO Family of Services, The HOPE Program, Town Hall Foundation, Young Adult Institute, Inc.; as well as the Fulton Fish Market, which is a Cooperative. These organizations are among the crown jewels of New York’s non-profit sector and we are honored to have represented them in this year’s budget process.
DHC’s Government Relations group has earned a reputation for successfully navigating the complex landscape present at all levels of government, helping clients achieve their goals to strengthen and build their organizations. We will always be proud of using our expertise to enhance relations between community-focused not-for-profits and elected officials, and secure resources to help address some of our city’s most challenging social issues.
