The White House has released the President’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 budget, which officially kicks off the FY23 federal budget cycle. Some highlights specific to our work to prevent and end youth and young adult homelessness are included in the chart below. 

This is just the beginning of the FY23 federal budget process. Next, the U.S. House of Representatives starts the process within Congress by drafting bills and moving them through the House Appropriations Committee. Of particular concern in the President’s budget is the extremely low level suggested for the McKinney-Vento Education for Homeless Children and Youth Act program. We are asking for significantly increased funding. Read our FY23 Appropriations fact sheet to learn more about our advocacy agenda and join us. 

NN4Y advocates for increased funding for programs targeted to prevent and serve youth experiencing homelessness. Together, we can continue to work collaboratively with you to ensure ending youth homelessness is a priority of the U.S. Congress.
