Zoom Meeting
American Rescue Plan: What Strings Are Attached
Thursday, April 15 at 3:00 pm ET

Join us for a special Zoom meeting – American Rescue Plan: What Strings Are Attached on Thursday, April 15 at 3:00 pm ET. As a part of the American Rescue Plan recently signed into law, $1.9 trillion in fiscal relief will be headed to those financially struggling due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Part of this relief package will set aside hundreds of billions of dollars for state funding. But what has to happen before states can receive these funds? The Treasury Department has left many questions unanswered. Join us for a live Q & A with a senior official of the Treasury Department for guidance and answers to all your American Rescue Plan questions.
