6 Ways the American Rescue Plan Helps Kentuckians

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) was signed into law by President Biden on March 11, 2021 and is providing immediate relief to Kentuckians facing the health and economic consequences of COVID-19. Many Kentuckians have already begun to see the benefits of ARPA as federal funding has hit bank accounts, extended unemployment insurance, and increased assistance for food, healthcare, and housing. ARPA is also providing state and local governments with funding to invest in public health, child care, infrastructure, jobs, and more. Together, these relief efforts will help Kentucky put the COVID-19 pandemic behind us, strengthen our economy, and build back better.
