Already, folks all over the country are feeling relief as a result of the American Rescue Plan. This is thanks to folks like you who stepped up to support President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Democrats nationwide.
Your commitment to building back better paved the way for Democrats to pass this historic piece of legislation -- and get our nation back on track. Because of the American Rescue Plan:
85% of American households will receive a direct economic impact payment -- and unemployment benefits will be extended through the end of the summer.
Health care premiums will drop for middle-class families, and unemployed folks enrolled in COBRA will have their premiums covered.
Child care providers will get help to cover their costs, and families will get increased tax credits to pay for care, helping more parents get back to work -- this represents the most significant investment in American child care since WWII.
SNAP benefits will continue at an increased rate through September, and nutrition assistance programs for mothers and young children will be expanded and modernized.
Small business loans will be expanded to help small business owners reopen their doors.
We're getting vaccines in arms, checks in pockets, and kids safely back to school. That is real progress. Read on for more important updates on the Biden-Harris administration →
Help is Here
The White House launched the "Help is Here" national tour to communicate directly with folks about how the American Rescue Plan is going to help them, their families, and their communities.
The DNC also released a TV ad to help get the word out about the American Rescue Plan that will be airing nationwide. Take a minute to watch, and then share it with your friends and family:

The Road to Recovery

The Fight Continues
Not a single Republican voted to pass the American Rescue Plan. Not. One. To keep building back better, we need to elect Democrats nationwide who'll fight for the American people, not against them.

The DNC is the only party organization tasked with electing Democrats at every level of government -- and their organizing capacity, tech and data infrastructure, and voter protection programs will be critical in expanding our majorities in 2022 and beyond. This team beat the odds last year when we won back the White House, and with so much on the line, we know we can count on you to step up today.
