The Haitian Studies Institute at Brooklyn College has received $1 million in funds that the academic institution said it will use for youth-focused programming, staffing and documenting the Haitian experience in New York City. 

An adopted New York city budget for fiscal year 2022, which began July 1, shows an allocation of $1 million for HSI as part of a pool of $4.5 million devoted to City University of New York (CUNY) research institutes. A total of $23.6 million was allocated for higher education initiatives.
