FACT SHEET: In First 100 Days, President Biden Has Put Georgia and America #BackOnTrack

April 29, 2021

As President Joe Biden visits Gwinnett County today to mark his first 100 days in office, Georgians will join him to celebrate the administration’s numerous achievements and the role our state played in helping President Biden accomplish his bold, historic agenda.

“Joe Biden has had the most consequential first 100 days in office of any president in modern American history,” said Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Thanks to President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, our country is back on track with relief checks in hand, more than 200 million shots in arms, and resources for our cities, small businesses, and schools to open back up. And with this administration’s forward-thinking leadership, we are poised to build back even better than before. Georgians see this – they know it couldn’t have happened without Joe Biden and Georgia voters, and they know that if Georgia Republicans had their way, none of this progress would have happened.”

The Biden-Harris agenda’s impact on Georgia in 100 days:

  • Checks: The Biden administration and congressional Democrats delivered relief checks of up to $1,400/person to 88% of all adults and children. 
  • Economic relief: The Biden administration and congressional Democrats directed more than $5 billion in state fiscal relief and more than $3.5 billion in local fiscal relief
  • Schools: The Biden administration and congressional Democrats secured more than $4.3 billion in relief for K-12 schools.
  • Kids: The Biden administration and congressional Democrats delivered additional checks of up to $1,600/child through the Child Tax Credit to the families of more than 2.2 million children, lifting an estimated 171,000 children out of poverty.
  • Workers: The Biden administration and congressional Democrats secured additional relief of up to nearly $1,000 through the Earned Income Tax Credit to 572,000 childless workers, including many in frontline jobs.
  • Health care: The Biden administration and congressional Democrats cut premiums for those who get health coverage from the Affordable Care Act; marketplace health insurance premiums are now $1,406 lower per month for a 60-year old couple earning $75,000 per year.

The Biden-Harris administration’s nationwide accomplishments in 100 days:

  • COVID-19: The Biden administration has administered over 200 million shots in less than 100 days. More than half of U.S. adults have gotten one shot, and two-thirds of all seniors are fully vaccinated. Daily deaths are down 75% since January 20.
  • Checks: The Biden administration has delivered 160 million relief checks of $1400 per person, with 85% of American households receiving one.
  • Jobs: President Biden and the administration created more than one million jobs – the most in any president’s first 100 days in history. Weekly unemployment claims have fallen to the lowest level since March of last year, when the pandemic began.
  • Small businesses: The Biden administration extended – on a bipartisan basis – the loan program for small businesses hard hit by the pandemic and provided relief to 4 million small businesses struggling to keep their doors open.
  • American Rescue Plan: President Biden and Democrats passed the American Rescue Plan to fund vaccine deployment and economic rescue payments, with many calling it “the most significant legislation” in a generation. Experts say it will cut child poverty in half by next year.
  • Tax cuts: President Biden cut taxes for families with children, so that families – starting in July – will get a $3,600 tax credit for each child under 18.
  • Health care: The Biden administration cut premiums for those who get health coverage from the Affordable Care Act; four in five now can get plans for $10 a month. 500,000 people signed up for coverage during special enrollment.
  • Guns: President Biden ordered the strongest actions on gun safety in 20 years, including the first-ever regulation of so-called ghost guns.
  • Afghanistan: President Biden ordered the end of 20 years of U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan.
  • Climate: The Biden administration rejoined the Paris Climate Accords, and for the first time ever, the U.S. hosted a virtual global climate summit for world leaders to make commitments to reduce their emissions.
  • Infrastructure: The Biden administration launched the American Jobs Plan, a once-in-a-generation investment in infrastructure to make America more competitive, and help create millions of jobs.
