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.
