American Rescue Plan

The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, also called the COVID-19 Stimulus Package or American Rescue Plan (ARP), is a $1.9 trillion economic stimulus bill passed by the 117th United States Congress and signed into law by the President on March 21, 2021, to speed up the United States' recovery from the economic and health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The ARP will be providing billions of dollars in relief to states and local governments. The Town of Greenwich is expected to receive $31,399,117 and the Town of Greenwich School System is scheduled to receive $9,585,423. The funds will be dispersed to the Town in two increments. The first increment was received in June 2021, and the second increment will be received approximately one year after.  

The ARP presents a great funding opportunity for the Town and school system officials to revitalize the community after the hardships endured throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. A committee has been assembled to ensure the funds fall within the U.S. Treasury guidelines and to develop priorities and recommendations to the BET and the RTM for the use of the unprecedented amounts of funding.
