IN THE SPOTLIGHT
PolicyLink Statement on President Obama's FY 2015 Budget
To strengthen our democracy, prepare the leaders of tomorrow, and remain globally competitive, we need to provide ladders to opportunity in the places where people live, learn, and work.
The President budget presents a strong blueprint for equitable growth at the federal level and in America's neighborhoods this year and beyond, and establishes clear paths to opportunity for low-income people and communities of color.
"Bringing healthy food retail into neighborhoods that have historically lacked access is a key strategy within a multifaceted approach to improve the food environment and advance community well-being."
