Aid to Wisconsin State and Local Governments
Updated June 4, 2021
The American Rescue Plan is a historic opportunity for Wisconsin to invest in an equitable economic recovery that leaves all communities better off. State and local lawmakers can use federal aid to help communities hit hardest by the pandemic and address the long-term inequities that have kept too many people of color, women, and those paid the lowest wages from reaching their potential.
A just recovery requires everyone to invest in our shared future. Wisconsin lawmakers cannot rely on federal relief alone to respond to this crisis. Wisconsin must make its own long-term investments in communities and infrastructure to ensure everyone recovers from this crisis together.
This factsheet includes categories of federal aid directed by the American Rescue Plan to Wisconsin state and local governments for which estimated dollar amounts are available, and selected categories of aid for which Wisconsin-specific amounts are not available. It does not include aid that is delivered directly to individuals, like unemployment benefits.
