American Rescue Plan: 5 Provisions


On March 11, 2021, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) into law. It provides $1.9 trillion in federal stimulus funds to individuals and communities. It is a historic opportunity to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and to make progress in advancing economic mobility in all communities. It is also the largest-ever investment of federal dollars to build state and local government capacity to use data and evidence to meet key outcomes.
