Choosing growth in our communities
Governor Deval Patrick has launched an interactive set of online tools to provide stakeholders across the state with detailed information about how his FY 14 budget recommendation will directly benefit communities. The interactive map tool shows members of the public, in real terms, what investing in growth and opportunity will mean for their communities.
According to the governor's office, each map outlines transportation projects in every community that would be funded under his FY14 budget proposal, as well as the additional Chapter 70 education funding and support for public colleges and universities communities can expect to receive under the investment plan. The maps also show how many children in each community are on the waitlist for early education and care programs. As part of the governor’s investment plan, the 30,000 child waitlist for early education and care programs across the state would be eliminated.
