Direct Funding to State and Local Government  (as of March 20201)

The American Rescue Plan provides direct funding to States, Counties, and Municipalities to help combat the Covid-19 pandemic. Many states have sustained massive revenue shortfalls and face a host of increased spending requirements.  The need is particularly pronounced at the local level: a National League of Cities survey showed a 21-percent revenue decline among cities with losses and the National Association of Counties projected a 20-percent revenue decline.

Our cities and counties are on the front lines in the fight against the COVID pandemic, and they need direct assistance to develop local vaccination plans, pay frontline employees overtime and hazard pay, offset revenue losses, bolster economic recovery, and continue to offer essential services to our families and neighbors.
