Bustling streets, bright lights and tall buildings are what typically describes New York City, but the city is started to be defined by its commitment to address the needs of millions on New Yorkers. Through public services implemented by public-private partnerships, the city has raised over $400 million in private and philanthropic funds.
With help from the city’s Office of Strategic Partnerships, the city has been able to bring together business, nonprofits and government agencies to launch a string of public-private partnerships, These partnerships have been designed to reduce inequality throughout the city and address the needs of a growing New York City population.
“Mayor de Blasio knows that we need an all-hands-on-deck approach to create the fair and equitable City we envision. Government alone cannot solve our most pressing issues, the business sector, nonprofits, and philanthropy must all work together to if we hope to move the needle on inequality,” said Gabrielle Fialkoff, Senior Advisor and Director of the Office of Strategic Partnerships. “Four years since the creation of the Office of Strategic Partnerships, our progress proves that this dedicated platform is a game-changer to build an inclusive City that leverages the best each sector has to offer.”
