Public health is an essential public service for our communities. Sustainable funding is vital to preserving the robust public health infrastructure needed to respond to both every day and emerging public health threats. NYSACHO’s state budget priorities seek always to assure that local health departments receive the state aid necessary to maintain and strengthen local core public health services that promote health and wellness and prevent disease, disability and injury throughout New York State.
