American Rescue Plan Resources

March 23, 2021

On March 11, 2021, President Joe Biden signed into law a nearly $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill (HR 1319; PL 117-2). Known as the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA), the law represents the sixth COVID-19 recovery measure that Congress has passed since last March. In a major victory for California’s counties, the final legislation includes robust, direct, and flexible federal COVID-19-related financial support to all counties. Pursuant to the bill, counties across America will receive a total of $65.1 billion, with funds allocated based on population. According to preliminary estimates, California counties are projected to receive at least $7.6 billion. View the full Act here.

This page will be consistently updated with new resources related to the American Rescue Plan, with a primary focus on the implementation and guidance related to the direct county relief funding in the Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund.
