Top Highlights of the American Rescue Plan

Top Highlights of the American Rescue Plan signed into law March 11 by President Biden.

The law provides more assistance for the existing COVID-19 economic aid programs the SBA is administering and provides new programs for the hardest hit entities. The SBA will immediately begin work on new programs in the Act and launch them as quickly possible to deliver the intended economic assistance. Supporting all small businesses across the nation that continue to struggle in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic with fair and equitable relief is the cornerstone of this landmark legislation.
