Executive Actions Taken to Strengthen the Care Economy

April 19, 2023
By Tracy Abler, Justice Coordinator

Tuesday, April 18, 2023, President Biden announced the most comprehensive set of executive actions any President has ever taken to improve care for hardworking families while supporting care workers and family caregivers.

The Executive Order includes more than 50 directives to nearly every cabinet-level agency to utilize existing funding to:

  • Make childcare and home care more affordable.
  • Make it easier for caregivers to access federal programs.
  • Improve access to care for veterans.
  • Ensure care jobs are good jobs.
  • Lift up Black, Indigenous, and other women of color who are most affected by the care crisis.

Thanks to those of you who have fought for this kind of transformative action to a better care future for all of us. Continue to urge Congress to pass the budgets and laws that continue to support the dignity of others.
