Now more than ever, rising taxes, student loan costs and home costs are slowly becoming unsustainable for young people to survive in America’s suburban regions. As a result, suburban populations are stagnating. The Suburban Millennial Institute is dedicated to finding public policy solutions in order to make the suburbs affordable for young people.

~ Who We Are ~

-The Suburban Millennial Institute is a Non-Partisan organization dedicated to finding public policy solutions that will make Long Island more affordable for young Millennials- those aged 20 to 34. .

-The Organization will focus entirely on working on the issues concerning Suburban Millennials- and analyzing other public policy initiatives and government projects through the lens of the Suburban Millennial.

-As the Long Island Index has appropriately illustrated, the region is plagued by a two-pronged problem that must be addressed:

  1. The “brain drain” issue is very real. Simply defined, young people are fleeing Long Island at an alarming rate.. According to the Long Island Index, we lost 15% of our 20-34 year olds during the last census period compared to a 5% increase nationwide. Action must be taken to rectify this.
  2. Nassau and Suffolk Counties do not adequately promote themselves as a destination for either immigration or emigration, and as a result we are only shedding population, not gaining it.

Nassau and Suffolk Counties would benefit immensely from a program aimed at welcoming these children. Faith-based organizations and non-profits throughout the region are already partnering with evangelical churches around the country to push for federal immigration reform, and moving in this direction seems like a natural evolution.
