New York state officials are providing $25 million to help fund more than 18,000 summer jobs statewide for needy teens.
 
The Cuomo administration says the money will be used to subsidize wages paid to eligible teens and to support education, training and other services.

Recipients must be between the ages 14 and 20 to qualify and come from low-income families.
 
The $25 million allocation from the state Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance is 61 percent more than last year.
 
Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the New York Youth Works Summer Employment Program will help address the chronically high unemployment rate among underserved teens.
