    Dear Association Executives – Late Friday afternoon, President Biden released his Fiscal Year 2022 Presidential Budget Request, totaling more than $6 trillion in government spending. The detailed request calls for significant funding increases across federal agencies, including mental health and substance use programs. It is important to remember that the President's Budget Request is largely a political document, holding no policy power or requirements for Congress to meet the request as appropriators

    Attached is a topline summary of key mental health and substance use programs.

    Please let us know if you have any questions.

     

    Best,

    Michael
