MADISON, Wis. – Over the last year, Governor Evers’ investments from the American Rescue Plan have continued to help those communities most impacted by this pandemic. Thanks to President Biden and Democrats in Congress passing this critical pandemic relief, Wisconsinites saw checks directly in their pockets, shots in their arms, and federal funds sent to support their favorite local businesses and neighborhood schools. Governor Evers will continue to champion programs that put the ARP funds to work for Wisconsin – and Democrats will continue to deliver for Wisconsin.

Read how Democrats’ American Rescue Plan delivered for Wisconsinites this week:

“The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) and Gov. Tony Evers announced the program Tuesday, funded from Wisconsin’s share of the federal pandemic relief program enacted in March, the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The money will be used to attract and provide financial support to meat processing students in Wisconsin and to help the processing industry connect with prospective employees.”

This support is partially funded by resources provided to the state of Wisconsin under the American Rescue Plan Act.”
