American Rescue Plan Act of 2021: What you Need to Know Today

Recorded On: 03/23/2021

The U.S. Congress last week passed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, legislation built on President Joe Biden’s plan to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic. The bill is far reaching in both its scope and the ways that destination organizations can directly and indirectly benefit from several provisions of the legislation including:
An extension of the Employee Retention Credit to Q3 and Q4 2021. This extension could mean an additional credit of up to $14k per employee
Funding of $350B for state & local governments
Funding of $3B for EDA Grants (double the amount that was in the CARES Act) with $750m dedicated to communities that have suffered losses in travel, tourism or outdoor recreation
Join industry experts John Lambeth, Civitas, Julie Hart, CFO by Design and Jack Johnson, Destinations International as they dissect the opportunities for your community in the American Rescue Plan.
