WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Invest in America launched a new digital ad, “Not Every Day,” highlighting the historic way the American Rescue Plan pushed through the traditional gridlock in Washington to deliver relief to millions of Americans. The ad will run on targeted digital platforms. View the digital ad here.

“Thanks to the American Rescue Plan, people across the country are feeling the direct effects of public investment as direct checks get deposited, vaccinations ramp up, and families and small businesses get the help they need,” said Zac Petkanas, senior advisor for Invest in America. “It’s rare that Washington delivers such tangible change to struggling people across this country, but it shouldn’t be. The American Rescue Plan is just the beginning of what large-scale public investment can do for Americans if we keep going big.”

The American Rescue Plan continues to enjoy bipartisan support as American communities and businesses start to feel the benefits of robust public investment.

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.
