American Rescue Plan Funding Checklist

Use our ARP checklist as a quick way to identify and share your funding priorities.
Published: 05/24/2021

We have an unprecedented opportunity to create the public schools all our students deserve. The American Rescue Plan Act is the nation's largest investment in public schools ever. Now schools across the country have access to the resources they need to provide students with social, emotional, and academic support in addition to funds that ensure the safety of school buildings and all who enter and work in them. We need educators, parents, and all who care about our students' future to work together and use their voices to make sure their ARPA funds are spent where they are needed most.
