Governor Tom Wolf has revealed another plan for using American Rescue Plan Act funds; this time $204 million to boost the payouts for the Property Tax and Rent Rebate Program which the governor says would give more than 460,000 senior and disabled residents an additional $475 each on their rebates. In April Governor Wolf proposed legislation to give $2,000 relief payments to Pennsylvania households with less than $80,000 a year in income from American Rescue Plan funds, but so far the General Assembly has not taken any effort to pass the measure. Pennsylvania has more than $1.7 billion in unused funds that must be returned to the federal government at the end of 2023 if the funds are not used.
