Join the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits and the Minnesota Council on Foundations for a special briefing on the American Rescue Plan Act with Representative Betty McCollum. 

Rep. McCollum will provide an overview of the recently passed American Rescue Plan, helping us all understand the opportunity and funding it will provide for our communities. With a multi-year time frame to spend these dollars, and with dollars flowing to families, schools, local government, state government, small businesses, and more – this Rescue Plan is massive, flexible, and complex. There are important opportunities for nonprofits and foundations to be involved in shaping how local dollars are ultimately spent to work toward an equitable recovery. Join us to learn more about the American Rescue Plan, what it means for the work you do in community, and how the sector can influence the process and be a partner in working toward an equitable recovery. Rep. McCollum will also provide an update on additional efforts underway in Washington DC and take your questions.
