The White House Issues Fact Sheet on Disability Activities During First 100 Days. Among the accomplishments it lists:

President Biden’s Inauguration Day Executive Order 13985 on Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government directs the whole of federal government to pursue a comprehensive approach to advancing equity for all, and explicitly with respect to persons with disabilities. Additionally, the EO establishes an Equitable Data Working Group to assess federal data, including on disability, to advance equity.

President Biden’s American Rescue Plan provides states with billions in additional Medicaid funding for home- and community-based services (HCBS) for one year.

The White House also cites President Biden’s two proposed policy packages, the American Jobs Plan and the American Families Plan. They include the following elements:
1. The American Jobs Plan proposes to invest an additional $400 billion to expand access to long-term services and supports for people with disabilities and support well-paying caregiving jobs that include benefits and the ability to collectively bargain while also building state infrastructure to improve the quality of services and to support workers.

2. The American Jobs Plan proposes a phase out of the subminimum wage provision in section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act. In addition, President Biden proposes an investment of $2 billion to expand access to competitive, integrated employment opportunities for workers with disabilities.

Biden's Budget Includes Boost To Special Ed, Disability Services

“President Biden’s request to Congress includes $400 billion in extra funding for services allowing people with disabilities and older adults to live in the community as opposed to nursing homes and other institutional settings.”

With his $6 trillion budget, President Joe Biden is cementing his resolve to significantly expand the nation's investment in home and community-based services for people with disabilities.

So Brave!
