Mayor Eric Adams And Sheena Wright Visit Union Settlement In East Harlem

March 16, 2022

On Saturday, March 12, 2022, NYC mayor Eric Adams and his team of elected officials and community leaders visited Union Settlement headquarters to outline his proposal for the city’s economic recovery and future.

Mayor Adams highlighted two specific proposals to support NYC families:

  • Increasing NYC’s Economic Income Tax Credit (EITC) and match with additional New York State
  • Creating new tax incentives to promote affordable childcare for working families.

These efforts will provide a meaningful difference in the lives of working families who were disproportionally impacted by the pandemic, like many of the East Harlem community members that Union Settlement is proud to serve in our programs every day.

So, we really want to applaud the amazing work that they’ve done and continue to do and particularly in the midst of this incredible pandemic that we’ve experienced. “– Deputy Mayor Sheena Wright, Strategic Initiatives
