$1,400 stimulus checks are on their way for many Americans because of the American rescue Plan, a $1.9 trillion COVID stimulus relief plan passed last week in Congress. But in addition to the checks for individuals, states, counties, and even towns are receiving money to boost local economies and enhance COVID response.

Eric Peterson from Coconino County says the plan is important for boosting the local economy. While money is being given to both the county and cities, it is unclear how the money will specifically be spent. The money should come in within the next 60 days.
