This plan is proposed to help fund the problems and low-income employees and retirees of Rhode Island. The budget also includes $7 million for early childhood programs and $45 million for individuals who experienced homelessness.

The spending plan is to be used for Cybersecurity and Emerging Technologies in Rhode Island, to pay for the cybersecurity professionals, and this also includes the expansion of subdivisions housing for low-income households.

The City Speaker, Joseph Shekarchi stated that Rhode Island House has communicated this plan with the Democratic Governor Dan McKee, and the other member executing this plan to help provide efficient secure housing for employees and residents, safe road travel, and increase income for low-income people. The plan did not only evolve in these aspects but also to provide better education to youngsters, to support businesses, especially small ones, and provide the needs and necessities of families.

The House had approved this budget following a $31 million to add in supporting housing development, infrastructures, and utility expansion.
