Foothold Technology and NY Health Home Coalition Respond to the Impact Budget Cuts Will Have for Vulnerable New Yorkers

In response to the recent executive budget decision by Governor Kathy Hochul, which includes a substantial $125 million cut to New York’s Health Homes, Foothold Technology, in close collaboration with the NY Health Home Coalition, voices its strong opposition and concern.

Health Homes have been pivotal in preventing such outcomes by offering essential interventions to those most in need.
