Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has announced a new plan that would utilize $3.2 billion in federal funding from the American Rescue Plan to help businesses and families affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The plan includes investments in the state’s pandemic response to expand broadband and build infrastructure and to help families, workers, small businesses, and communities across the state. Breaking it down, $50 million will go toward the tourism industry and $600 million will help support businesses and the We’re All In small business grant program. Evers is proposing $200 million be invested in infrastructure that includes broadband services and $500 million be invested in statewide pandemic response.
