WBC preparing for American Rescue Plan funding

14 May 2021

The latest COVID-19 federal relief package - the American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) - became law in early March. The majority of the overall $1.9 trillion in assistance will be allocated as direct payments and other relief to American families with additional help available through the Small Business Administration and state and federal agencies for targeted businesses, communities, and organizations affected by the ongoing pandemic. 

Wyoming was allocated about $1.07 billion. The Wyoming Business Council (WBC) and other state agencies are working closely with Governor Gordon’s office and legislators to identify the best ways to capitalize on this opportunity.

We will continue to update wyobizrelief.org and deliver information via partner messages, social media, and our newsletter as it becomes available.
