WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (WA-01) released an updated series of resources guides to help families, small businesses, and communities navigate benefits provided by the American Rescue Plan, a historic $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package signed into law by President Biden on March 11, 2021.
DelBene released guides that are specific to:
- Health Care
- Higher Education
- K-12 Education
- Mayors and Cities
- Mental Health
- Small Businesses
The guides provide an overview of provisions in the American Rescue Plan, highlight links to federal, state, and nonprofit resources, and answer frequently asked questions about benefits and how to access them. They will continue to be updated regularly as the law is implemented at the federal and state levels.
“The American Rescue Plan will bolster our national and statewide efforts to get Americans vaccinated and back on their feet from this pandemic,” said DelBene. “The implementation of this law is key to its success, and my hope is that these guides are a helpful resource in navigating it so that our communities understand what benefits are available to them.”The resource guides can be found here.
