Last month, Congress passed the American Rescue Plan – landmark legislation put forward by President Biden to provide much-needed relief to the American people who have endured so much this past year due to the pandemic. This legislation provides significant investments to tackle the COVID-19 crisis head-on, and gives workers, families, small business owners, and communities the resources they need to get through the pandemic.
Included in this package is funding for vaccine distribution and testing, direct checks to eligible individuals and families, small business aid, funding to help our schools safely reopen, and so much more. This legislation provides the relief that so many American need in the short term so that we can come back stronger than before.
A relief package of this size has a lot of folks in the First State wondering: what is exactly in the American Rescue Plan? That’s why Senator Coons, Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester and I spent some time answering your questions in a video.
Additionally, my office has put together answers to your frequently asked questions (FAQs) on the American Rescue Plan. You can find it on my website here.

We are on the road to recovery and as long as we continue to take the steps to keep ourselves and our community safe — steps like continuing to wear a mask, staying six-feet apart, and getting vaccinated as soon you are eligible — this pandemic will soon be in our rear-view mirror.
Stay safe and stay healthy,
