Secretary Haaland on the American Rescue Plan


Hi, I’m Deb Haaland.

The passage of the American Rescue Plan is an historic package that will provide much-needed relief for families, Tribal governments, and wildlife-related pandemic initiatives.
I was proud to support it as a Member of Congress, and I’m so enthusiastic about putting it into action as the Secretary of the Interior. 
One year into the pandemic, the challenges we face are significant and continue to disproportionately impact American Indians and Alaska Natives, communities of color, and rural communities.
At Interior, we are committed to working with federal, state, local, Tribal and territorial governments, public health officials, health care providers, researchers and the public to execute a whole-of-government response to the COVID-19 pandemic so we can protect the health and safety of the American people.
The change we need will take hard work and perseverance, but I know that together there is nothing we cannot accomplish.

Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland pledges Interior's support of the American Rescue Plan.
