Shalanda Delores Young is an American political advisor. She is the deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) since March 24, 2021. She also became the acting director of the office at the same time. She worked for the United States House Committee on Appropriations as its staff director.

After Neera Tanden's nomination as OMB director failed to pass in the United States Senate, Young has been supported by both Democratic and Republican politicians to be nominated as the OMB director.[1][2]
