2026 is on the horizon and the planning starts now


Report to the President

In 2019, the Commission led a strategic planning process in coordination with partners, stakeholders, planners, thinkers, dreamers, and doers, resulting in an overall program for America250. This plan, Inspiring the American Spirit, was submitted to the President of the United States for review and transmission to Congress.

This is just the beginning of the ongoing nationwide collaboration necessary to bring America250 to life.

Please check back frequently in the coming months for updates on our planning process and how each and every American can participate. In the meantime, get involved by following us on social media and subscribing to our monthly newsletter. We want to hear from Americans across all walks to life — share your story!
