The American Rescue Plan

The American Rescue Plan will change the course of the pandemic, deliver immediate relief for hard hit families and small businesses, and build a bridge towards economic recovery.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the corresponding economic crisis have undermined the health and economic wellbeing of millions of American women. Across the country, more than 200,000 women – especially older women and women of color – have died from COVID-19. Approximately 4.7 million women are also unemployed and millions more have left the labor market altogether. Without additional government assistance, the economic and public health crises could worsen in the months ahead and our national vaccination program will be hobbled.
 

The American Rescue Plan will change the course of the pandemic, deliver immediate relief for hard hit families and small businesses, and build a bridge towards economic recovery. The plan will cut child poverty in half. It is one of the most progressive pieces of legislation in history, with more than two thirds of its tax cuts and direct payments going to families making less than $90,000 per year.
