The Legislature provides a total of $14,980,000 in additional Academic Year funding
to the State University of New York (SUNY). Additional Academic Year funding of
$7,400,000 for Community College base aid will support a base aid level of
$2,300. This reflects an increase of $50 per full-time equivalent student.
The Legislature provides $2,420,000 in Academic Year funding for faculty lines at
the university colleges of technology and $1,960,000 for the operation of child
care centers in order to serve student-parents and their children. The child care
centers funding is provided through the federal Temporary Assistance to Needy
Families (TANF) Block Grant. The Legislature also provides an additional
$2,700,000 for the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) and $500,000 for the
newly established Maritime Appointments Program.
The Legislature provides an additional $16,900,000 for the General Revenue Offset

campuses. Finally, the Legislature provides an additional $190,000 to reflect
additional federal support for student financial aid programs; and provides an
increase of $2,400,000 for the Long Island Veterans Home to better reflect
anticipated revenues for State Fiscal Year 2002-03.
The Legislature provides for an additional $16,900,000 for the General Revenue

Program, State elected officials can nominate students for placement in SUNY
Maritime's regimental system of cadet training. Students nominated by the
Governor or elected members of the Legislature and admitted under the College's
admission policy, will be entitled to receive a scholarship for the full amount
of tuition, $3,400, during his or her four year program at SUNY Maritime.
The Legislature denies the Executive proposal to provide procurement
exemptions, employee flexibility and authorization for the creation of a local
board of directors at each SUNY Health Science Center.
