American Rescue Plan Explained

April 5, 2021

Dear Friends,

Virtual Town Hall

On Wednesday, April 7 at 3 PM, I'm holding a virtual “Teach-In” event to highlight the life-saving resources contained in the American Rescue Plan (ARP). The Teach-In will help people understand how they can benefit from the various provisions of the bill by connecting constituents with the resources provided under the new law.


I'm bringing together experts from Small Business Administration (SBA), The Urban League of Atlanta, Atlanta Legal Aid, Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Emory University, the Atlanta Food Bank, Oakhurst Medical Center, the Department of Community Affairs, educators and more to answer your questions about what the American Rescue Plan means for you and your family and for small businesses – and how the ARP has empowered these agencies to help you. This event will be about an hour with most time provided for Q&A. The event will be on Zoom and my Facebook page.

We will cover:

• Stimulus checks

• Earned Income Credit

• Direct payments

• Unemployment

• Rental assistance

• Mortgage assistance

• Eviction moratorium

• Landlord and tenant rights

• Food hubs

• Utilities and resources assistance

• Vaccines

• Paycheck Protection Plan

• Economic Injury Disaster Loan

• Healthcare

• Re-Opening schools safely

• Funeral benefits


As always, I appreciate your time and feedback. Please remember you can reach me and get good information on my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages by clicking the icons at the top of this e-letter.
