American Rescue Plan (ARP)

#FFFFFF

Purpose

On March 11, 2021 The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, also called the COVID-19 Stimulus Package or American Rescue Plan, a $1.9 trillion economic stimulus bill, was passed by the 117th United States Congress and signed into law.

The purpose of the bill is to send relief to states and local governments affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic allowing them to better respond to the resulting public health needs and economic hardships that communities continue to experience nationwide.

Concurrent with this program launch, Treasury has published a Final Rule and an Overview of the Final Rule that implements the provisions of this program.
