American Rescue Plan Logo: Investing in Delaware

President Biden signed the nearly $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) —legislation championed by Senator Tom Carper, Senator Chris Coons, and Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester— to provide COVID-19 relief to millions of Americans. The State of Delaware will invest $925 million of one-time funded projects across the state that:

  • Meet pandemic response needs
  • Build a stronger, more equitable economy in communities hit hard by COVID-19
  • Provide immediate economic stabilization for impacted households and businesses
  • Address systemic public health, public safety, and economic challenges

Here is how Delaware will use ARPA funds to Build Back Better.
