Spearheaded by Chairman John Yarmuth, the American Rescue Plan (ARP) met the moment. It is one of the most consequential laws in modern history. This historic legislation – enacted without a single Republican vote – delivered tailored, targeted relief to respond to the urgent needs of the American people. That is why experts and community leaders across the ideological spectrum expressed their support for ARP. Its life-changing and life-saving provisions – like the expanded and enhanced Child Tax Credit, state and local relief, and resources to safely reopen schools – helped families and communities make ends meet while laying the foundation for our record-breaking economic recovery.

Under the leadership of Congressional Democrats and the Biden Administration, the United States has achieved a record-breaking and resilient economic recovery in the wake of a once-in-a-century pandemic. Unemployment is near historic lows and new businesses are being created at record rates. But hurdles remain: Americans are grappling with the impacts and costs of global economic challenges – elevated inflation around the globe, international supply chain bottlenecks, and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. As Democrats work to lower costs for families and oversee the fastest and most equitable recovery in recent memory, we remain committed to a timely appropriations process that will deliver the investments necessary to meet the needs of the American people and our nation.

To ensure a full recovery in rural America, the Biden Administration and Congressional Democrats are addressing longstanding problems facing rural communities, including a shortage of health care services, limited public transportation, a lack of affordable internet options, inadequate weatherization and climate resilience, and older and unreliable energy infrastructure. Since President Biden took office, Democrats have enacted the American Rescue Plan (ARP), the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), and the Consolidated Appropriations Act for 2022. Together these investments will help revive rural America and provide the foundation these communities need to build a better, stronger future.
