FOR PARENTS: We recommend all parents enroll their kids to RemoteLearning.school's Kids Education Enrichment Program (K.E.E.P) for children ages 5-17, an online supplemental program to Remote, Hybrid, and/or in-person learning, to help prevent them from falling behind on their education. For that purpose, we are making available a $15-off school voucher that can be used to purchase the lifetime membership. Use code "STIMULUS2021" Sign Up Here.

$400 a week in Supplemental Unemployment Benefits: The Budget Resolution will provide the funding necessary to increase the $300 a week in supplemental unemployment benefits that 18 million Americans currently rely on to $400 a week. FPUC, PUA, other Unmployment programs and extension will be extended through August 29, 2021


$3,000/$3,600 Child Tax Credit: The Budget Resolution will enable the Senate to expand the Child Tax Credit from $2,000 to $3,000 and to $3,600 for children under the age of 6. This provision alone will lift nearly 10 million children out of poverty.


Earned Income Tax Credit: The Budget Resolution will enable the Senate to nearly triple the Earned Income Tax Credit and provide tax relief to more than 17 million low-income workers – many of whom are on the frontlines of the pandemic.


$4,000 Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit: The Budget Resolution will enable the Senate to expand the Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit so that working families can receive up to $4,000 for the childcare expenses of one kid and up to $8,000 for two kids.


Minimum wage: The Budget Resolution will enable the Senate to raise the federal minimum wage from a starvation wage of $7.25 an hour to a living wage. In the United States of America a job should lift you out of poverty, not keep you in it. Raising the minimum wage will have a substantial and direct impact on the federal budget.


$350 billion to prevent mass layoffs of public sector workers in state and local governments: The Budget Resolution will enable the Senate to provide $350 billion in financial assistance to state and local governments to prevent the mass layoff of public sector workers. During the pandemic, state and local governments have laid off 1.4 million workers –including 50,000 in December alone. The Congressional Budget Office has said that the Number One best “bang for the buck?of all the money Congress has passed so far is aid to state and local governments.


Vaccine distribution: The Budget Resolution will enable the Senate to provide robust funding for vaccine distribution to get vaccines in the arms of the American people, to defeat the coronavirus and to reopen the economy.


Healthcare: The Budget Resolution will enable the Senate to expand Medicaid, community health centers, the National Health Service Corps, mental healthcare and provide $17 billion to the VA to make sure our veterans receive the healthcare they have earned and deserve.


Child Care: The Budget Resolution will allow the Senate to provide 875,000 kids with the childcare they desperately need. It will also provide 6 months of grants to 85,000 child care centers and 60,000 family child care homes.


Pensions: The Budget Resolution will enable the Senate to protect the retirement benefits of millions of workers and retirees in troubled multi-employer pension plans. As a result of the greed on Wall Street, workers and retirees in multi-employer pension plans are in danger of seeing their retirement benefits cut by as much as 65 percent. That is unacceptable.

When a worker is promised a pension benefit after a lifetime of work that promise must be kept. By shoring up the multiemployer pension system and the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation, this resolution will prevent the pensions of millions of Americans from being cut.


Nutrition: The Budget Resolution will enable the Senate to provide nutrition assistance to tens of millions of hungry families with children, the disabled and the elderly by expanding SNAP, WIC and the Pandemic EBT program.


Housing: The Budget Resolution will provide rental and utility assistance and mortgage relief to millions of tenants and homeowners who are in danger of being thrown out of their homes and onto the street. In America today, over 14 million Americans owe an average of $5,800 in back rent. The Budget Resolution will enable the Senate to provide these struggling Americans with the relief they need to stay in their apartments.


Homeless Assistance: During the midst of winter, there are hundreds of thousands of people experiencing homelessness, many with underlying health challenges. This resolution provides investments in appropriate housing that will protect their health and help decrease COVID-19 transmissions with safe, and socially distant housing.


Public Transit: the resolution provides relief for transit agencies who have been deeply impacted by the pandemic and forced to cut service and jobs in 2020. Public transportation agencies estimate they face more than $39 billion of additional costs and revenue losses related to the COVID-19 crisis that could result in cuts to essential services and worker layoffs. They need our help.


Broadband: The Budget Resolution will provide the funding necessary to invest in broadband so that millions of public school students will receive the high-speed internet services they need for their education. In America today, at least 15 million public school students in rural areas and inner-cities live in homes without an internet connection. That has got to change.


Amtrak: The Budget Resolution will provide the funding necessary to allow Amtrak to rehire 1,500 workers who were involuntarily furloughed last year, and to restore regular service to more remote communities that rely on Amtrak as a link to economic centers.
