Public Hearings on Foundation Aid Funding Formula

Albany, NY — The Rockefeller Institute of Government today announced five public hearings to be held across New York State in July and August on the State’s Foundation Aid education funding formula.

New York State’s Enacted State Fiscal Year 2024-25 Budget called for the Rockefeller Institute to conduct a study to assess the Foundation Aid formula and discuss potential updates and modifications to how the formula is calculated.

As part of the study, researchers at the Rockefeller Institute are collecting feedback from the public and from education stakeholders, including school families, teachers, staff, administrators, school boards, appointed and elected officials, education researchers and experts, and education-focused support and advocacy organizations.

Stakeholders can provide comments about the Foundation Aid formula in two ways: by providing verbal testimony at a public hearing and by submitting written comment through an online form.

For more information on the public hearings, including dates, locations, speaker registration, and written comment submission, please visit our Foundation Aid Study page.
