WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Invest in America launched a digital ad, “BFD,” highlighting the landmark, economy-saving public investments in the American Rescue Plan. The ad will run on targeted digital platforms. View the digital ad here.

“The American Rescue Plan is a big f****** deal because it goes big on things that matter like getting direct checks to Americans, getting vaccines in arms, and getting our schools reopened,” said Zac Petkanas, senior advisor for Invest in America. “These overwhelmingly popular and bold public investments are already delivering results that will help our nation come back stronger from the Covid pandemic. We should learn from this success and do some more BFDs in the future from infrastructure to clean energy to the care economy.”

Supported by a vast bipartisan majority, The American Rescue Plan is set to turbocharge the U.S. economy and deliver aid to the American workers, communities, and small businesses that need it most.

The American Rescue Plan delivers:

  • $1,400 direct checks to millions of Americans.

  • $160 billion for fighting Covid through vaccine distribution, Covid testing, and tracing. 

  • $350 billion in aid to state and local governments to keep essential workers on the job and continue delivering services.

  • $130 billion to help safely reopen schools.
