Through the American Rescue Plan Act 2021 (ARPA) California is expected to receive $26 billion dollars to use for COVID-19 relief broadly, through December 2024.
ACHD is asking that the State and Legislature approve a $32,000,000 expenditure of the state's Coronavirus State Fiscal Recovery Funding, specifically for healthcare districts directly providing services aimed at pandemic response and recovery.
Relief funding can be used toward:
- Cost incurred related to COVID-19
- Future costs related to COVID-19
- Lost, delayed or decreased revenue

We need your help! Contact your legislator today to voice your districts' need for COVID-19 relief funding. Share your story with letters, phone calls and meetings with your legislator(s).
Be sure to include details on how your district has supported the community during the pandemic, including specific costs, programs and challenges. We also encourage you to share ACHD's fact sheet with legislators as you meet with them.
