American Rescue Plan
On Thursday, March 11, 2021, President Biden signed into law the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act, which will deliver critical aid to States (as well as Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia), districts, schools, educators, students, and families as the country continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. The U.S. Department of Education (Department) will move quickly to get these vital resources to each State, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia.
The Department is committed to supporting State educational agencies (SEAs) and school districts in implementing these unprecedented resources to promote safe school operations and equity-driven, sustainable, evidence-based programs to serve students – especially those who are the furthest from opportunity – and to continue to strengthen teaching and learning.
