On March 28, 2022, the White House released the President’s funding proposal for the fiscal year 2023 (FY23) federal budget. Congress will work over the coming months to develop the final FY23 spending package.
The President’s request includes:
- $110 million for the McKinney-Vento Act’s Education for Homeless Children and Youth (EHCY) program.
- $150 million for the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act (RHYA) programs.
A comprehensive table summarizing the President’s proposal for FY23 funding levels for early care, education, homelessness, and housing programs is provided below.
SHC will continue to advocate for resources and policies to support children, youth, and families experiencing homelessness. We can help connect you and community partners with your legislators via virtual meetings, participate in those meetings with you, and/or provide talking points, materials, and other advocacy resources. Please contact Alleanne Anderson, SHC’s Policy and Advocacy Program Manager.
SUMMARY OF BIDEN’S FY23 BUDGET REQUEST RELATED TO EARLY CARE, EDUCATION, HOMELESSNESS, AND HOUSING
The chart below summarizes the Biden Administration’s FY23 requested funding for select early care, education, housing, and homelessness programs.
NOTE: This proposal was developed prior to the finalization of the fiscal year 2022 federal budget. Therefore, some program requests do not accurately reflect the enacted FY22 levels and adjustments are expected (including for the McKinney-Vento Act’s Education for Homeless Children and Youth program).
