American Rescue Plan Resources
We have provided and regularly updated links and documents below that may inform local and tribal governments, nonprofits, and others about programs or processes related to and resulting from the ARP.
There are similar clearinghouses of information that exist at the national level, which we’ve provided, and that may be helpful for different sectors. There’s program specific information from federal and state partners, and there’s guidance for the practical management for ARP funds.
Unlike the CARES Act funding that local governments received in 2020, ARPA funding can be used to replace lost revenue. There’s a methodology for determining what this amount should be and we’ve created a worksheet you can use for this calculation.
Keep up with all things ARPA
Who’s saying what about when, how much, and how funds will be distributed
Bipartisan Infrastructure Law
This Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will rebuild America’s roads, bridges and rails, expand access to clean drinking water, ensure every American has access to high-speed internet, tackle the climate crisis, advance environmental justice, and invest in communities that have too often been left behind. The legislation will help ease inflationary pressures and strengthen supply chains by making long overdue improvements for our nation’s ports, airports, rail, and roads. It will drive the creation of good-paying union jobs and grow the economy sustainably and equitably so that everyone gets ahead for decades to come. Combined with the President’s Build Back Framework, it will add on average 1.5 million jobs per year for the next 10 years.
