In his report, Rep. Delgado writes:
“The past 100 days have been filled with struggle, grief, and profound loss. As a community and nation, we saw darkness. But we are finally beginning to see the light.
In mid-March, the American Rescue Plan was signed into law. Since then, hundreds of thousands of upstate residents have received their vaccinations. Millions of Americans have gotten their stimulus checks. Small businesses are reopening. Job growth is rising. Students are returning to their classrooms.
I was proud to play an instrumental role in the passage of this historic legislation. My Direct Support for Communities Act funding formula, included in the American Rescue Plan, will deliver $130.2 billion to local governments across the United States — including over $400 million to New York’s 19th Congressional District.
In addition to the American Rescue Plan, I’ve been working hard to improve the lives and livelihoods of upstate folks. I introduced legislation to deliver affordable health care, support our farmers, improve broadband access, address the opioid crisis, and more.
As we recover from COVID-19 and begin to rebuild, I’ll will keep working to deliver investment in our communities through infrastructure and job creation. I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy, and I am looking forward to connecting with you all in person soon.”
