Comptroller DiNapoli and Senator Peralta Pen Op-Ed on NYS Dream Act

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli and state Senator Jose Peralta co-authored an op-ed on the NYS DREAM Act. If passed, the bill would extend the state’s Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) to eligible undocumented students.
In 2013, Comptroller DiNapoli released a report estimating that additional TAP costs would be less than     $20 million, an increase of less than two percent, if extended to undocumented undergraduate students attending City University of New York (CUNY) and State University of New York (SUNY) colleges during the 2012-2013 academic year. A revised version of that report using student enrollment data for the 2013-2014 academic year reaffirmed the cost and impact estimates from the 2013 report.
