The American Families Plan (AFP) proposed by the Biden-Harris Administration reflects, after many decades, the full range of bold proposals needed to transform the economy so it truly works for children, young people, women, and families. Coupled with the American Jobs Plan announced earlier this month, the AFP would at last provide public investment in a secure, equitable future for the nation’s families and an economic recovery for everyone, addressing income inequality and systemic racism and targeting investments in good jobs, child care, paid leave, education and nutrition, as well as directly providing families with the cash they need to raise their children.
The proposal includes:
–First-ever national paid family and medical leave program
-Investments in affordable quality child care and universal preschool
-Improvements made to the Child Tax Credit (CTC) and Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)
-Investments to make college more affordable for students with low incomes
-An expansion of school meals and other nutrition programs
