Governor’s Planning for Federal American Rescue Funds Will Help Wyoming Survive, Drive and Thrive

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 8, 2021
CONTACT: Michael Pearlman, Communications Director
Michael.Pearlman@wyo.gov

CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Governor Mark Gordon has charged a diverse group of stakeholders with developing a blueprint for the use of federal relief funds that will be distributed to the State of Wyoming and local governments later this year through the American Rescue Plan (ARP). Estimates are that the State of Wyoming will receive $1.1 billion. In addition, millions of other dollars will be distributed to citizens via tax rebates, and to local governments and other entities directly from the federal government.

The Governor’s instruction is to identify the needs and opportunities for Wyoming and develop a budget to optimize the one-time dispersal of these funds.

“Wyoming will survive the impacts of COVID, drive through our period of recovery and set up the conditions for us to thrive in the long-term,” Governor Gordon said. “It is imperative to emphasize long-term benefits because this funding has increased the debt for future generations.”
