New Report Lays Out How Americans In Every State Will Benefit From The American Rescue Plan

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Invest in America released a new report detailing the relief that the American Rescue Plan will provide to all 50 states and D.C., including the number of Americans in each state who will receive direct checks, the funding each state will receive to reopen schools, the amount of state and local aid that would help pay for vaccine distribution and to keep essential workers on the job, and the number of residents who will benefit from the legislation’s tax credits. Read the report here

Overall, the American Rescue Plan provides about $145 billion for vaccine distribution, Covid testing, and tracing; $350 billion in aid to state and local governments to help pay for essential workers and vaccine distribution; and over $125 billion to help safely reopen schools. The legislation also includes $1,400 direct checks and a Child Tax Credit expansion that will provide between $3,000-$3,600 per child.

“We’re on the road to recovery in every state across the country thanks to the robust public investment in the American Rescue Plan,” said Maddy McDaniel, communications director for Invest in America. “Already, we’re seeing the immediate positive effects the American Rescue Plan has for thousands of American workers — and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. People across the country will start to feel the benefits of federal investment as schools reopen, as vaccinations ramp up, and as direct checks and tax credits help struggling Americans pay their bills and put food on the table.”
