Policy Update: Connecting the Dots Between the Biden Administration's Policy Proposals and Philanthropy

Hear an overview of the recently passed $1.9 trillion relief legislation known as the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and the key pillars of the new infrastructure proposals, the American Jobs Plan, announced by President Biden on March 31. The jobs plan targets 40 percent of the benefits of climate and clean infrastructure investments to disadvantaged communities, so the input from the philanthropic community can help policymakers envision what solutions can be translated into legislative language. Find out if your Member of Congress is one of the legislative architects or a key influencer in the House or Senate.

The Administration is also proposing major increases in health, education, and other domestic priorities in the President’s 2022 budget proposal, for the first time in over four years. Learn how it all fits together and what role civil society organizations should play in this moment of reimagining the next fifty years in America.
