From the Introduction: "The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA; P.L. 117-2) is the sixth major legislative package in a series to address domestic public health and health system challenges related to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic--the most consequential and widespread domestic infectious disease emergency in over a century. ARPA follows several earlier COVID-19 pandemic response measures enacted in 2020. ARPA includes provisions addressing a number of issues, such as tax credits, unemployment benefits, state fiscal relief, health, housing, education, and food assistance, among others. This report describes ARPA's public health, behavioral health, medical supply chain, and health-related workforce, services, and support provisions."
