OMH Funding Opportunity and Senate/Assembly Raise Corporate and Personal Taxes

March 12, 2024

Please see below for two issues of interest.

1) OMH Funding Opportunity: Adult Critical Time Intervention Team

The New York State Office of Mental Health announces the availability of funds to develop 26 Adult Critical Time Intervention Teams statewide. These CTI Teams will serve individuals during a critical transition time who have mental illness and who have not been successfully engaged in services during or after critical times in transition.

The CTI model is an evidence-based approach that is a time-limited, phase-based care management service designed to help vulnerable individuals during critical times of transition in their lives. CTI promotes community integration, self-advocacy, and access to ongoing support by helping individuals develop and utilize strong ties to their professional and non-professional support systems during and after these transition periods. CTI includes assertive outreach and engagement with individuals in higher-level of care settings as well as in the community with a focus on addressing key social care needs at the individual level. CTI places emphasis on helping individuals build skills and strengthen linkages to ongoing sources of support that will remain in place after the time-limited CTI intervention ends.

2) Senate & Assembly Raise Corporate Tax Through 2026, Raise Personal Income Tax Through 2027 — Raising Combined $2.2 Billion

ALBANY, NY | March 12, 2024

Following the release of the State Senate and Assembly One-House Budgets, Fiscal Policy Institute Director Nathan Gusdorf today released the following statement:

“In light of New York’s affordability crisis and the need for deeper State investments to lower the cost of living, the one-house budgets wisely invest in affordable housing, healthcare, and higher education. Additionally, the legislature sensibly rejects the Governor’s proposed cuts to public schools and home care worker wages. 

“Both budgets prudently raise the top personal income tax and corporate tax rates to fund these investments, relying on increased revenue from those least affected by the affordability crisis. However, the budgets only increase taxes on the top 0.3 percent of taxpayers, and only on a temporary basis through 2027. The State’s long-term fiscal health would be better served by broadly increasing the progressivity of our tax system for all high earners on a permanent basis.

“Over the past four years, we have seen the importance of robust fiscal spending in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. New York’s fiscal base is stable and growing, and should be levied to strengthen the state’s economy and support working- and middle-class New Yorkers who currently face prohibitively high costs of living.

“The Governor should adopt the legislature’s increased investments and the revenue proposals needed to fund these essential public services.”
