#STEPNY #CSTEPNY #APACSORG# #StandUp4StudentAid, the more powerful our voices will be!


In keeping with Speaker Heastie’s commitment to double the funding of opportunity programs, we ask for a 20% increase in STEP and CSTEP funding this year.

  • STEP and CSTEP programs have not received an increase in funding for five years!
  • STEP and CSTEP have a proven track record of success! A pandemic has not interfered with serving our students!
