Matsui Announces Millions in Local Government Recovery Funding
U.S. Department of Treasury finalizes allocations for American Rescue Plan’s $350 billion in emergency funding for state, local, territorial, and Tribal governments
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Doris Matsui (D-CA) announced more than $468 million in local funding to aid local city and county governments in the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of the American Rescue Plan, eligible state, territorial, metropolitan city, county, and Tribal governments will be able to access funding directly from the Treasury Department in the coming days to assist communities in meeting ongoing public health needs and addressing the economic impacts and social disparities of the pandemic.
“With the passage of the American Rescue Plan we sent a clear message to the American people that help is here,” said Congresswoman Matsui. “Over the past year, we fought hard to include funding for public-sector workers like teachers, first responders, sanitation workers, and other essential employees whose jobs were at risk. Today’s announcement follows through on our commitment to our local government heroes and our small businesses by providing them the resources necessary to weather the remainder of this crisis. As we move forward on the road to recovery, we must continue to support our front-line heroes and give our local partners the means to chart a faster course back to normalcy and prosperity.”
