The Office of New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli has created a new online tool to monitor spending of federal recovery aid and COVID-19 relief programs in the state, including funds for excluded workers, child care providers, emergency rental and homeowner assistance, and small business recovery.
“My office is committed to full transparency in government spending,” DiNapoli said. “New York has received an historic level of federal funding to weather the COVID-19 pandemic. This has helped stabilize state and local government finances and allowed for greater investments in programs to assist New Yorkers in need. My office will follow the money to ensure federal funds are getting where they are supposed to go and being spent in smart and efficient ways to help New York’s recovery.”
