AMERICAN FAMILIES PLAN
President Biden unveiled the American Families Plan to invest in our kids, our families, and our economic future – because when American families do well, our nation thrives.
The American Families Plan is a once-in-a-generation investment in the foundations of middle-class prosperity. Beyond helping American families meet the needs of today, this plan powers the innovation and growth of tomorrow through an historic expansion in access to quality education, health care, and child care. Alongside the American Jobs Plan, the American Families Plan will help expand the American workforce, make it easier for folks to break into the middle class, and build a stronger economy that doesn’t leave anyone behind.

The American Families Plan will:
- Make education more affordable and expand opportunity through transformational investments. This includes providing access to free pre-K for three- and four-year olds, increasing the maximum Pell Grant award by approximately $1,400, and lowering college costs for low- and middle-income students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), and Minority Serving Institutions (MCIs).
- Provide economic security to families by providing comprehensive paid family and medical leave, expanding school meal programs, and investing $1 billion in maternal health.
- Expand tax credits that help workers and families.
