American Rescue Plan
On March 11th, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan into law, a sweeping COVID-19 stimulus bill that will help put money in the pockets of the American people, ensure students can safely return to school, and invest funds that put us on the path towards ending the pandemic.
- $1,400 Survival cash payments for each taxpayer and each dependent to individuals who make up to $75,000, head of households who make up to $112,000 and couples who earn up to $150,000. The legislation would expand the program to qualify dependents of all ages for survival payments.
- Extends COVID federal unemployment benefits through the first week of September and increases the weekly benefit to $300
- Expands the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) to workers without children nearly tripling the maximum credit and extending eligibility to more Americans
- Increases the Child Tax Credit (CTC) to $3,000 per child over 5 and $3,600 per child under 6 and makes the credit fully refundable and advanceable
- Extends access to health care by increasing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) premium tax credits, subsidizing COBRA coverage and health care for unemployed workers who are ineligible for COBRA. Find more information on the COBRA premium subsidy here.
- Extends the paid leave tax credit and makes several reforms including providing an additional 10 days of paid sick leave
