What’s New:

The Staten Island PGRC would like to thank the various community providers who attended our first stakeholder forum to discuss problem gambling in our community.  We held our forum in Staten Island on October 4, 2019.  The providers’ participation in the discussion was stellar and we look forward to continuing work with all of them to address problem gambling and how it intersects with other priorities on Staten Island.  We thank all the providers for their time and everything they do for our communities!
