In one of his first official acts as President of The United States, Joe Biden was able to sign the Covid Relief Bill on Thursday March 11th 2021. The coronavirus relief package is able to clear stimulus checks and send vaccines to much needed hospitals and health clinics. This relief bill is able to provide Americans with $1,400 per person and put $160B dollars to covid vaccines distribution, $25B for utility and rental help along with almost $350B into the state and local relief. This also keeps the additional $300 per week from the last bill till september 6th for unemployed people as well to expand child tax credits for a year.
The bill sends $130B to schools for reopening with supplies and classroom upgrades. The bill also sends money to help small businesses get back on their feet. It raises the child tax credit to $3,600 for children under 6 and $3,000 for children under 17. The relief package has already started to help out Americans all over the place.
The President had began his office in January 2021 and wanted to make progress against the pandemic, with the help of the court he was able to pass the relief package and get more vaccines into people’s arms. Along the way he was able to mass produce more vaccines and pass more laws. Picking up the pieces Trump left on the ground, Biden has been able to keep America steady and to push forward against this pandemic.
