President Biden signed the $1.5 trillion spending bill on Tuesday, March15th, 2022, ending the continuing resolutions and providing a budget for FY 2022.


As noted in last week’s Children’s Monitor, child welfare budget line items received some small but important increases such as an additional $5M for both CAPTA and CB-CAP; unfortunately, many line items were flat funded and the increases received were not at the level of the President’s request or the House budget.
