President Biden

President Biden has signed an Executive Order described as a “comprehensive” set of executive actions at improving care for people with disabilities.

It includes more than 50 directives to nearly every Cabinet-level agency to expand access to affordable, high-quality care, and provide support for care workers and family caregivers.

The far-reaching plan touches on child care, long-term care, early education and more. Its goals include boosting compensation and improving job quality for care workers and expanding care options. Actions (currently a bit vague) include directing the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to consider reducing or eliminating certain care costs; identifying grants that support care programs and expanding access; and improving access to home-based care.

The Biden administration is also calling for investments to support high-quality, affordable child care, preschool, and long-term care in its fiscal year 2024 budget.
