Economy & Jobs
Governor Hochul is determined to fight for working families, grow our state’s small businesses, and ensure that New York’s economy emerges from COVID stronger than ever before.
Ever since Kathy helped her mom start a flower and gift shop, she has been a tireless advocate for small businesses and local economies.
As Governor, Kathy has made historic investments in advancing New York’s economic recovery, creating good-paying jobs and putting working families first. As our state continues to recover from a once-in-a-generation pandemic, she has fought to get New York back on track by delivering hundreds of millions of dollars in recovery assistance to small businesses and workers, and increased support for teachers and health care workers.
To make New York more affordable for the middle class, Governor Hochul is also:
- Accelerating $1.2 billion in middle-class tax cuts for 6 million New Yorkers
- Providing $100 million in relief for nearly 200,000 small businesses
- Delivering $1 billion in property tax rebates for more than 2 million New York families
- Making affordable child care accessible to 100,000 more working families and investing $75 million to raise child care worker wages
Under Governor Hochul’s leadership, New York has made great strides to ensure an equitable recovery for all that puts the state’s economy on track to build back stronger than before.
