Franklin County and the American Rescue Plan

What is the American Rescue Plan?

The American Rescue Plan is a bill passed by Congress and signed into law by President Biden to help Americans who are suffering from the effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It includes significant federal resources to support a strong public health response and vaccination strategy, provide direct assistance to families, and deliver resources to local governments to use in their own communities.


What does it mean for Franklin County?

The Franklin County Commissioners have been hard at work since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure that no tool or resource at our disposal is left untapped that could help our residents. Whether it was sharing trusted sources of information, deploying local, state, and federal resources, outfitting the Greater Columbus Convention Center as an overflow hospital facility, or forging strong partnerships with community leaders, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and healthcare providers, the commissioners worked tirelessly to meet unprecedented health and economic challenges brought on by the pandemic.
