Make no mistake: America has been knocked down. Millions have lost jobs, hours, pay, health care, or the small business they started, through no fault of their own.
Even before COVID-19, too many families were struggling to make ends meet and too many parents were worried about the economic future for their children. And, Black and Latino Americans, Native Americans, immigrants, and women have never been welcomed as full participants in the economy.
President Biden believes this is no time to just build back to the way things were before, with the old economy’s structural weaknesses and inequalities still in place. This is the moment to reimagine and rebuild an American economy for our families and the next generation.
Build Back Better is President Biden’s three-part agenda to rescue, recover, and rebuild the country. It includes three plans:
The American Rescue Act of 2021
Signed into law on March 11, 2021,
The American Rescue Plan is President Biden’s plan
to rescue the country from the crises
caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The plan is currently providing direct relief to Americans,
containing COVID-19, and building a bridge to economic recovery.

The American Jobs Plan
Introduced on March 31, 2021,
The American Jobs Plan is President Biden’s plan
to make a historic investment in America.

rebuild our country’s infrastructure,
and position the United States to out-compete China.

The American Families Plan
Introduced on April 28, 2021,
