(Washington, D.C.) – Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), the Chair of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, released a comprehensive online resource guide to help inform people across Washington state on what the American Rescue Plan means for them and our state, and how they can access aid and assistance through the law. As one of the key authors of the American Rescue Plan, Senator Murray sought to craft a package that provides struggling families with direct relief, gets schools the resources needed to reopen safely, and supports state, local, and Tribal governments with the funding they need to respond to the pandemic without cutting services. With the legislation now signed into law, Senator Murray will continue working to ensure resources and assistance get to families and communities quickly and efficiently.

“Now that the American Rescue Plan is signed into law, it’s important to me that families, workers, small businesses, students, Tribes, and all our communities know how it helps them and how to get the relief they need as quickly and easily as possible,” Senator Murray said. “As we work to make it through the pandemic and begin building a stronger, more inclusive economy, I will continue listening to and working with people across Washington state to ensure no one is left behind in this recovery.”

Senator Murray’s online hub of American Rescue Plan resources for people, families, workers, small business owners, and more across Washington state can be found HERE, including information on the following topics:
