Overall cost of the project is approximately $1.3 million. The Rockland County Youth Employment Program will now be funded through 2016. More than 50 young people earn $9 an hour working at job sites around Rockland. The program ran out of funding. Resolution sponsor Legislator Jay Hood Jr. has recommended funding for the program should be increased so there are no shortfalls in 2017. And finally, the Legislature approved accepting $356,275 grant that will help address reducing sodium consumption at early childhood centers, and universities and colleges.
