S.E. Williams | Executive Editor

Congressman Pete Aguilar recently spoke with the San Bernardino City Council and provided information regarding the American Rescue Plan (ARP) fund estimates for the city.

According to Aguilar, who represents California’s 31st Congressional District, the ARP signed into law this month by President Joe Biden is estimated to provide about $84.99 million in relief funding. The funds are expected to be available in approximately 90 days.

Overall the ARP includes nearly $350 billion for state, local and tribal governments and more than $130 billion for city and county governments. The following chart provides estimates for ARP funding to other local governments in San Bernardino County:

Currently, Inland Empire residents, families and small businesses are working to make ends meet during a once in a generation crisis, and they deserve relief Aguilar stressed.

“The American Rescue Plan delivers the funding and resources our community needs to get more residents vaccinated, get money into the pockets of those who need it, get our kids safely back in school, and keep our small businesses operating,” he advised.

“This is a key step forward in President Biden’s plan to build back better, and I will continue to work with the Biden Administration and my colleagues in Congress to deliver additional relief to help the Inland Empire bounce back from this crisis,” Aguilar concluded.
