Dear Friends of BDT,
As we enter a new year, BDT is taking time to reflect on the extraordinary challenges so many of us faced in 2021, the strides we made nonetheless, and the road ahead in 2022. BDT made its mark in many ways over the last year, including helping to secure nearly 90,000 benefit enrollments that provided $147 million in assistance for families and individuals. Helping families heat their homes, put food on their table, and pay for healthcare is no small feat in such uncertain times, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the tireless work of our staff and partners and the generosity of our funders.
From an increased interest at the federal, state, and local levels in making it easier to apply for benefits and services, to the historic opportunity for broadband access to transform the lives of millions of people, 2022 is shaping up to be a year of great potential — and we vow to continue our mission to help people today and build better systems for tomorrow. I invite you to watch this video as we celebrate some highlights and unveil plans for the year ahead.
We look forward to the next chapter of BDT’s work. Thank you for being a part of this journey as we envision and cultivate a brighter future for all.
With sincere appreciation,
