State Budget

Fiscal Year 2022

Massachusetts State House

Each January the Governor releases his version of the state budget for the upcoming fiscal year that begins on July 1st. Each branch of the legislature (House and Senate) in turn develops a budget on which they ultimately agree and send to the Governor for his signature prior to July 1st. The Arc tracks each step in the budget process and offers helpful comments on sections that pertain to issues affecting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The Arc recommends this fact sheet to be used during the FY’2022 budget advocacy period with your representatives and senators (most active period from 2/01/2021 through 4/01/21 but the sooner the better). House and Senate members usually meet in February to share their priorities for funding (sometimes into March) with their respective Ways and Means chair). Please see the fact sheet here.
