VIDEO RELEASE: Maloney Hosts American Families Plan Virtual Roundtable with Local Education Leaders

The American Families Plan will provide critical economic relief to families, students, and academic institutions in the Hudson Valley

Newburgh, NY – Today, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) hosted a virtual press conference with local education leaders to discuss the American Families Plan’s investments in education. The proposal powers the innovation and growth of tomorrow through an historic expansion in access to quality education and childcare, giving people a real shot, from pre-k to adulthood, setting more kids up for success, and lifting up the middle class. 

“The American Rescue Plan put cash in pockets, shots in arms, and people back in jobs. Families across the country have already seen a real difference in their lives. But it’s not enough to just restore us to where we were as a nation prior to the pandemic. We must build back a stronger and better economy that works for everyone,” said Rep. Maloney. “The American Families Plan invests in our children and our families, helping folks cover the basic expenses and continuing the American Rescue Plan’s historic reductions in child poverty because when American families do well, our nation thrives. This is the kind of investment in our nation’s future we need to get back on track.”

President Biden recently announced the American Families Plan – a once-in-a-generation investment in our education, health care, and childcare that will rebuild the middle class and invest in America’s future. The American Families Plan will direct $200 billion toward free, universal pre-school; $109 billion toward two years of free education at a community college; over $80 billion toward Pell Grants for low-income students; $62 billion toward strategies that will strengthen completion and retention rates at community colleges; $46 billion toward Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), and Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs); and $9 billion toward training, equipping, and diversifying teachers.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

In March, Rep. Maloney help secure more than $208.5 million in funding from the American Rescue Plan for schools in New York’s 18th Congressional District. The American Families Plan will continue the work of the American Rescue Plan by investing in our children and families.
