National Hispanic Heritage Month, 2022

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Hispanic heritage holds an indelible place in the heart 
                and soul of our Nation, and National Hispanic Heritage 
                Month reminds us that the American identity is a fabric 
                of diverse traditions and stories woven together. Since 
                the beginning, our country has drawn strength and 
                insights from Hispanic writers, scientists, soldiers, 
                doctors, entrepreneurs, academics, and leaders in labor 
                and government. Our culture has been enriched by the 
                rhythms, art, literature, and creativity of Hispanic 
                peoples. And our deepest values have been informed by 
                the love of family and faith that is at the core of so 
                many Hispanic communities. All of these contributions 
                help us realize the promise of America for all 
                Americans.

                During National Hispanic Heritage Month, we reaffirm 
                that diversity is one of our country's greatest 
                strengths. We also acknowledge the Hispanic leaders who 
                have stayed in the struggle for equal justice to ensure 
                that everyone in this Nation can contribute their 
                talents and have the opportunity to thrive.

                My Administration is committed to the success of 
                Hispanic communities. Since coming to office, we have 
                provided billions of dollars in loans, including to 
                Hispanic-owned small businesses, and are working to 
                increase the share of Government contracts going to 
                underserved businesses by 50 percent. We have helped 
                students, including Hispanic students, earn 
                postsecondary degrees by providing over $10 billion to 
                community colleges and approximately $11 billion to 
                Hispanic-Serving Institutions. My Administration has 
                sent billions of dollars in emergency financial aid 
                grants directly to students and has increased the 
                maximum Pell Grant by the largest amount in over a 
                decade. Additionally, my Administration is providing up 
                to $20,000 in debt relief as part of a comprehensive 
                effort to address the burden of growing college costs. 
                This action will have a significant impact on Hispanic 
                borrowers, given that among Hispanic undergraduate 
                borrowers, 65 percent receive Pell Grants. We have also 
                strengthened rental assistance for families facing 
                eviction and bolstered community health centers that 
                predominately serve Hispanic patients and other 
                patients of color. Our American Rescue Plan expanded 
                the Child Tax Credit for 2021, providing critical 
                relief to millions of working families and helping 
                drive a historic reduction in Hispanic child poverty.

                As we look ahead, we will continue to build a fair, 
                humane, and orderly immigration system and fight to 
                protect the rights of Deferred Action for Childhood 
                Arrivals (DACA) recipients and others who call this 
                country home. That means continuing to support a 
                pathway to citizenship for those with temporary 
                protected status as well as farm workers and other 
                essential workers. It means keeping alive the torch of 
                liberty that has led generations of immigrants to this 
                land seeking new opportunities and a better future. We 
                will also work to strengthen our partnerships with 
                allies across Latin America.

                Additionally, we are committed to reflecting the full 
                talents of our Nation through our own Administration. I

                Administrator Isabel Guzman, as well as Hispanic staff 
                at every level of the Federal Government.

                This month, we carry on the important work of honoring 
                Hispanic heritage. Let us give thanks to the many 
                generations of Hispanic leaders who have helped build 
                this country and continue to fight for equality and

                of Hispanic men and women who hold the destiny of our 
                Nation in their hands.

                community, the Congress, by Public Law 100-402, as 
                amended, has authorized and requested the President to

                the United States of America, by virtue of the 
                authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws 
                of the United States, do hereby proclaim September 15
