American Rescue Plan
The American Rescue Plan Act (ARP; P.L. 117-2) was signed into law on March 11, 2021. It is the sixth COVID-19 relief bill enacted and provides approximately $1.9 trillion in assistance. It includes fiscal relief funding for state and local governments, education, housing, food assistance, and additional grant programs.
According to current projections, the bill will result in at least $17.4 billion to Georgia, including state and local governments and individual assistance. However, Georgia may receive more or less than the projected amount for any particular program.
The Office of Planning and Budget is the prime recipient of the State and Local Fiscal Relief Fund, Capital Projects Fund, Homeowners Assistance Fund, and Emergency Rental Assistance Program. Other funds made available through federal relief acts are directly allocated to other state and local entities.
Note: All allocation amounts are projections and are subject to change as new guidance is released. Funds have not yet been received from U.S. Treasury.
