Episode 62: VA Provisions in COVID Relief Bill: American Rescue Plan

It is a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package will provide economic relief to hundreds of thousands of people across the country, including the veteran community, who have been impacted by the pandemic. The ARP Act includes $17 billion for VA to ensure veterans have continued access to health care, assistance programs, and other protections against COVID-19. Specifically, it will help VA to reduce the massive backlog of claims and appeals, expand health care services such as women’s health and mental health care, create job retraining programs, and more.
