About This Portal

The New York State Education Department has allocated funding from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, to Binghamton University and Fordham University to launch the New York State Cares for Communities (NYSCFC) initiative, designed to leverage support in identified communities most adversely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. NYSCFC will build upon the existing resources and experience of community-based and faith-based partners supporting regional capacity to address the needs of families related to the pandemic.
