American Rescue Plan Signed into Law

BRYAN JOHNSON
MARCH 11, 2021


As anticipated, President Biden signed the $1.9 trillion “American Rescue Plan” into law today (Thursday), after the sweeping COVID-19 relief package passed both the House and Senate.

The law goes a long way toward turning the corner on the pandemic and kickstarting the U.S. economy left suffering in its wake. As mentioned in a previous alert by Michelman & Robinson, LLP, individuals, state and local governments, small businesses, and/or schools can look forward to the following, among other things:

  1. $1,400 stimulus payments to individuals earning less than $75,000 annually and married couples making no more than $150,000 per year (from those levels, the payments phase out: individuals whose income is in excess of $80,000 and married couples who earn $160,000 get nothing);
  2. $300 per week unemployment supplements through September 6, 2021, with the initial $10,200 of benefits tax-free for households having an annual income of less than $150,000;
  3. Child tax credit expansion, which provides qualifying families $3,000 per child ages 6 to 17 and $3,600 annually for children under 6;
  4. Another $7 billion for the Paycheck Protection Program; $15 billion for the Emergency Injury Disaster Loan program; and $25 billion for grants to restaurants and bars;
  5. $14 billion earmarked for COVID-19 vaccine distribution along with an additional $47.8 billion for COVID testing and tracing;
  6. $350 billion in state, local, and tribal government relief;
  7. $20 billion in assistance for those seeking to cover rent payments; and
  8. $130 billion for K-12 schools and higher education (specifically for re-opening costs and student aid).
