My guess is we will never know the amount. Some say $1 billion, others several thousands of dollars - $ 1 million.
Whatever the amount is, almost every source of information about ThriveNY is in agreement that something is wrong. The numbers for funding and results are not there. With more than $34 million given to the education bottomless hole in 2019-2020, and no accountability, that's just ridiculous.
It seems that the money is NOT going to 280 city school food service workers who are considered 'essential', but IS going to new hires working in the offices of Mayor de Blasio and Chancellor Richard Carranza.
