The American Rescue Plan (ARPA)

The American Rescue Plan will change the course of the pandemic and deliver immediate and direct relief to families and workers impacted by the COVID-19 crisis through no fault of their own. This law is one of the most progressive pieces of legislation in history, and will build a bridge to an equitable economic recovery.

State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF)

The Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) program, a part of the American Rescue Plan, delivers $350 billion to state, local, and Tribal governments across the country to support their response to and recovery from the COVID-19 public health emergency. The SLFRF program provides governments across the country with the resources needed to: 

  • Fight the pandemic and support families and businesses struggling with its public health and economic impacts 
  • Maintain vital public services, even amid declines in revenue resulting from the crisis 

  • Build a strong, resilient, and equitable recovery by making investments that support long-term growth and opportunity

Funds from the HAF may be used for assistance with mortgage payments, homeowner’s insurance, utility payments, and other specified purposes. The law prioritizes funds for homeowners who have experienced the greatest hardships, leveraging local and national income indicators to maximize the impact.
