Rep. Maloney Announces New Yorkers Received $22 Billion in Rescue Payments This Year
WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) announced that New Yorkers have received nearly 10 million Economic Impact Payments totaling more than $22 billion in 2021 as part of the American Rescue Plan which she helped to pass.
“The $22 billion that New Yorkers received in economic impact payments this year helped keep families and small businesses afloat, but we still have work to do to make a full economic recovery. I remain committed to keeping hardworking New Yorkers in their homes, businesses open, and seeing our city come back even better and stronger than before. Thanks to New Yorkers’ unmatched resilience, we are on the road to a full recovery – now, we need to focus on making sure everyone gets vaccinated so that we can keep everyone safe as we fully reopen.”
