Biden Unveils American Rescue Plan

On Thursday, Jan. 14, President-elect Joe Biden unveiled the American Rescue Plan (ARP)—a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief proposal his administration will pursue shortly after taking office on Wednesday, Jan. 20.

The proposal includes funding intended to provide individuals with economic security for the duration of the pandemic, such as another round of direct Economic Impact Payments at $1,400 per person, enhanced unemployment benefits and expanded refundable tax credits, among others. It also contains money for critical workforce supports, such as reopening schools and shoring up child care. Additionally, the ARP includes funds to help contain and eliminate COVID-19, such as a vaccine distribution plan, a proposal to scale up testing and mobilizing a public health jobs corps.
