The American Rescue Plan: Making A Difference for Maine

On March 6, the United States Senate passed the American Rescue Plan (ARP) by a 50-49 vote to confront the damage done across the board by the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic.

This legislation was negotiated in part by Senator King, and was designed to save lives, support families, stabilize small businesses, make our virus-strapped communities whole, and deliver for our tireless medical and safety professionals.

In the months since, ARP funds have been allocated for and directed to Maine communities – supporting health care workers, restoring communities, helping working families, and making state and local governments whole after suffering from the strain caused by the virus.
