The federal government enacted the American Rescue Plan Act
of 2021, Pub.L. 117-2, as the act may be subsequently amended, (federal
act) to provide support to state, local, and tribal governments in
responding to the impact of the COVID-19 public health emergency and
to assist them in their efforts to contain the effects of the COVID-19
public health emergency on their communities, residents, and businesses.
As part of the federal act, the state will receive $3,828,761,790
from the federal coronavirus state fiscal recovery fund to be used for
specific purposes identified in the federal act. The bill allocates a total of
$15 million to be appropriated for victim's services programs and
purposes related to populations who have been disproportionately
negatively affected by the COVID-19 public health emergency, including
those affected by domestic violence and sexual assault. The money will
be appropriated from the economic recovery and relief cash fund using
money from the federal coronavirus state fiscal recovery fund. All money
appropriated through the bill must conform with the eligible uses set forth
in the federal act.
The bill appropriates money to the following entities:
  • The forensic nurse examiner telehealth program;
  • The victims and witnesses assistance and law enforcement
  • The address confidentiality program fund; and
  • The Colorado domestic abuse program fund for the funding
of domestic violence programs.
