• How the American Rescue Plan Act Affects You and Your Business

    President Joe Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) into law on March 11, 2021, which includes $1.9 trillion in funding for individuals, businesses, and state and local governments.

    With vaccination rates climbing, the ARPA may be the last major legislative relief package addressing the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The ARPA extends and expands some of the critical provisions in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (CAA). It also includes some new provisions that should come as welcome news to many families and businesses.
