Build Back Better Act

The Committee on Education and Labor’s portion of the Build Back Better Act invests in lowering costs for families, securing good-paying jobs for American workers, and setting a strong foundation for America’s children. These investments will:

  • Lower the cost of child care and secure universal pre-K for three- and four-year-olds,

  • Lower the cost of higher education by funding two years of tuition-free community college and increasing the value of Pell Grants,

  • Strengthen our public schools by helping school districts repair, modernize, or rebuild crumbling and outdated school buildings,

  • Help workers secure good-paying jobs by expanding job training programs, and

  • Help prevent child hunger by expanding our most effective child nutrition programs.
