“Help Is Here:” NCDP Statement On The Historic Passage Of The American Rescue Plan

This afternoon, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan, delivering on his promise to North Carolinians to provide critical COVID relief. In response, NCDP Chair Bobbie Richardson released the following statement:

“As President Biden said, help is here. The people of North Carolina have suffered unimaginable loss over the last year, losing jobs, loved ones, struggling to pay the bills, and put food on the table,” said NCDP Chair Bobbie Richardson. “But today, we can breathe a sigh of relief. With the American Rescue Plan, President Biden and North Carolina Democrats have made a historic investment in North Carolina families, delivering $1400 checks to those who need it most, providing funding to get more shots in more arms, and ensuring schools have the resources they need to return to the classrooms safely.” 

The American Rescue Plan will have a profound impact on North Carolinians in the form of direct payments.
