In an exclusive session for Council members only, the Council’s Government Affairs Team and Capitol Hill consultants will be available to answer questions about the implementation of the recently passed $1.9 trillion relief legislation, the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and the new infrastructure proposals announced by President Biden on March 31, called the American Jobs Plan. Since the jobs plan targets 40 percent of the benefits of climate and clean infrastructure investments to disadvantaged communities, input from the philanthropic community can help policymakers envision what solutions can be translated into legislative language. Find out if your Member of Congress is one of the legislative architects or a key influencer in the House or Senate. Hear how it all fits together and what role civil society organizations should play in this moment of reimaging the next fifty years in America.
