Eric S. Goldstein, Chief Executive Officer of UJA-Federation of New York, said, “We’re deeply grateful for Senator Schumer’s leadership in negotiating the stimulus package, which among many critical provisions, saved the social services sector of New York City. Senator Schumer secured the inclusion of all social service agencies who receive medicare funding in the SBA bill, ensuring the continuation of direct services for those most in need. Huge thanks to Senator Schumer and the New York delegation for delivering on their promise to keep New Yorkers safe and healthy.”
