  • 1,188,000 North Carolina families with 1,968,000 children received tax cuts from the American Rescue Plan’s expanded Child Tax Credit, which averaged to $436 a month per family, totaling more than $2.99 billion in tax cuts in 2021.

  • $183.3 million in FY2022 for home energy assistance through the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, which saw its funding double because of the American Rescue Plan.

  • Over 670,000 people are now seeing reduced health care costs through the Health Insurance Marketplace, and coverage saw a 25% increase since the American Rescue Plan passed.
