The American Rescue Plan Act

The American Rescue Plan, signed into law by President Biden on March 11, 2021, invests $1.75 billion  in American Indian and Alaska Native government programs administered under the oversight of the Department of the Interior’s Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs (AS-IA). 

The American Rescue Plan makes changes to laws and provides emergency supplemental funding to respond to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
