Unfinished Business: The FY23 Biden Budget and what’s next for human needs programs
April 11 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
On March 28th President Biden released his proposed Fiscal Year 2023 budget. This budget proposes vital investments in our future while providing for the urgent economic and public health investments that families need now.
Join the Coalition on Human Needs and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities to hear policy experts who will explain what you need to know about the President’s new budget and how it can be the blueprint for congressional action.
The Biden budget tackles the unfinished business before us. It pledges continued support for an economic package needed now, including the expanded Child Tax Credit and EITC, affordable child care, health care, housing, and reduced prescription drug costs and climate change mitigation. And it proposes important expansions of mental health services, affordable housing, education funding, more humane treatment of immigrants, and much more.
The Biden budget shows we can afford the investments our nation needs while reducing the deficit, by requiring the ultra-wealthy and corporations to pay a fairer share of taxes.
You’ll learn about these proposals, and how to use them to get Congress to act on its once-in-a-generation opportunities to pass historic economic legislation that would lift millions out of poverty and reduce inequities that hold us back. The time to get the job done is now.
