Governor [Cuomo] (NY) is announcing a new partnership between SUNY and the nonprofit Modern States to further extend the Freshman Year for Free program to veterans and active duty military families.

“America’s veterans risk their lives to defend our freedom, and in this state we honor them by expanding the resources and opportunities they need to lead a healthy, dignified life,” Governor Cuomo said. “This year we are going to work to expand affordable housing investments, mental health services and college education opportunities to ensure we have the backs of our veterans just as they had ours.”
