New York City Mayor Eric Adams today released the Mayor’s Management Report (MMR) for Fiscal Year 2023, a report assessing city agency performance for all of Fiscal Year 2022, from July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2023. The report — which covers the first full fiscal year of Mayor Adams’ term — shows that the Adams administration continues to “Get Stuff Done” for New Yorkers who need it most, with upgrades to youth services, progress in the city’s economic recovery, and quality of life improvements for all New Yorkers.

“As I say often, New York is not coming back — New York is back. And the numbers from our first full fiscal year in office show it,” said Mayor Adams. “Thanks to the smart investments our administration has made to boost youth programming, promote an equitable economic recovery, revamp our organics recycling program, build more housing, and so much more, our city is moving in the right direction. There is still more work to do, but this report shows that we are notching critical victories that will improve the lives of all New Yorkers.”

“For more than four decades, the MMR has been the gold standard for public accountability in city government,” said Mayor’s Office of Operations Director Daniel Steinberg. “This administration believes in the power of data to better inform decision-making and enhance public accountability, which is why we debuted the dynamic Mayor’s Management Report last year and continue to add metrics relating to key governmental functions and Mayor Adams’ signature initiatives. By giving the public a better picture into how city government is performing, we can continue to ‘Get Stuff Done’ for New Yorkers.”

The MMR, which emerged out of the city’s 1970s fiscal crisis, is a national model for using data-driven reporting to provide transparency on municipal services. Both the MMR and the Preliminary Mayor’s Management Report — which covers the first four months of the fiscal year and is released in January — are mandated by Section 12 of the New York City Charter.

Highlights of this year’s MMR include:

Boosting Youth Services

Participation in the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) rose by 22% over last summer, after the mayor increased the number of slots for the program to 100,000. Overall stipends and wages paid to SYEP participants went up to $117.4 million, a 21% increase over the summer of 2022. The number of young people receiving life coaching as part of the Fair Futures program increased by 24%, following Mayor Adams’ creation of the College Choice program building on the work of Fair Futures. The city continued to identify and engage runaway and youth, experiencing homelessness with the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development’s street outreach team engagements rising by 22%. Enrollment in Summer Rising among students aged K-8 increased by 8% following Mayor Adams’ expansion of the program last year. Average center-based child care voucher enrollment jumped by 42%, ensuring broader access to affordable child care.

Promoting an Equitable, Healthy, Sustainable Economic Recovery

Construction jobs associated with housing production increased by 31%, and permanent jobs increased by 19%. Visitors to the city’s Cultural Institutions Group members — a diverse coalition of institutions including museums, botanic gardens, and more — increased by 9%, the largest total number of visitors since Fiscal Year 2019. The number of jobseekers registered through the New York City Department of Small Business Services’ Workforce1 Career Centers rose by 15%.

Building a Greener City

NYC Ferry ridership increased 23% and set an all-time high for average monthly ridership with 550,000 riders. Staten Island Ferry ridership increased by 21%, a faster rate of ridership increase than the New York City subway system. Citi Bike trips increased by 13% and set an all-time fiscal year ridership high with over 32 million total rides. The city reached a record level of organic waste being diverted from landfills, surpassing 100,000 tons for the first time since the city’s organics recycling program began, thanks in part to Mayor Adams’ $23 million investment in the citywide expansion of the administration’s curbside organics program in the Fiscal Year 2023 Executive Budget.

Investing in Affordable, Quality Housing

Total affordable housing starts went up by 44% to 24,090, and the number of total supportive housing units increased by 21%. There was a 17% increase in households previously experiencing homelessness moving into affordable units and a 222% increase in applicants previously experiencing homelessness placed in public housing through the federal Section 8 program.

Improving Quality of Life

Major felony crime arrests increased 17%, to the highest level in over 10 years. Gun arrests increased from 6,426 to 6,837, a 6.4% increase thanks to the introduction of Neighborhood Safety Teams under Mayor Adams’ leadership, which continues to take illegal guns off our streets.
