Catholic Charities USA Responds to Administration’s FY22 Budget Proposal

(Alexandria, Va.) – Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA) issued the following statement in response to President Biden’s FY22 Budget proposal:

“While the President’s FY22 budget proposal includes many positive provisions to fund important programs aimed at addressing homelessness, affordable housing, mental and behavioral health issues, food and nutrition, racial discrimination, and other issues, it falls short of ensuring that this is done while supporting the dignity of all human life. Since its existence, Catholic Charities advocates for just and fair policies to help the most vulnerable individuals and persons reach their full potential. Central to our mission is respect for the sanctity and dignity of all human life.”

“CCUSA will continue to work with policymakers and the administration to find just solutions that advance the common good of all. We urge Congress to maintain the Hyde Amendment to protect human life.”

Advocacy & Social Policy Initiatives

CCUSA's Advocacy and Social Policy team advocates for policies that uphold human dignity and promote integral human development. Informed by the experience of local Catholic Charities agencies, the team urges policy makers to encounter the needy and vulnerable in their communities and to create policies which assist and support them.
