President Obama’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 budget, released on March 4, reflects the Administration’s commitment to helping low-income individuals and vulnerable families access pathways to economic mobility, healthy development, and high quality of life.
The budget proposal adheres to spending levels established in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013, but includes additional investments through the Opportunity, Growth, and Security Initiative that make concrete the President’s vision for an economy that works for everyone. This includes a particular focus on investments for disadvantaged and disconnected youth across multiple federal agencies. The proposal also calls for resources that can connect communities of color to economic and educational opportunity and advance pathways for boys and young men of color.
