Right now, too many Americans are struggling to meet basic needs and cover basic expenses. An economy that fails so many of us is not only unfair, it’s unsustainable. The American Families Plan is a once-in-a-generation investment in the foundations of middle-class prosperity – education, health care, and child care. It recognizes that policies to make life easier for American families must focus on bringing everyone along: inclusive of gender, race, or place of residence – urban, suburban, or rural. Beyond helping American families meet the needs of today, this plan powers the innovation and growth of tomorrow.
On March 31, 2021, President Biden introduced his American Jobs Plan – the second phase of his ‘Build Back Better’ agenda. While the American Rescue Plan is changing the course of the pandemic and delivering relief for working families, this is no time to build back to the way things were.
On Thursday, March 11, 2021, the President signed into law: H.R. 1319, the “American Rescue Plan Act of 2021,” which provides additional relief to address the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy, public health, State and local governments, individuals, and businesses.
As a reminder: You have until May 15th to enroll or update your health care choices through the special health care enrollment period. The Biden Administration took a crucial step by opening a special health care enrollment period to ensure everyone has access to health care that meets their needs during the pandemic. Reopening the health care exchange is an important first step in responding to the pandemic.
