Description: The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (P.L. 117-2) (ARPA) created a new grant program for Exchanges established by states under section 1311(b) of the Affordable Care Act (42 U.S.C. 18031(b)). The program directs the Secretary to award $20 million to State Exchanges for purposes of enabling such Exchange to modernize or update any system, program, or technology utilized by such Exchange to ensure such Exchange is compliant with all applicable requirements. Applicable requirements include implementation of provisions of the ARPA, which increase financial assistance amounts available to certain taxpayers for Plan Years (PY) 2021 and 2022 who enroll in a qualified health plan through an Exchange.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will award up to 21 cooperative agreements, totaling $20,000,000, to State Exchanges that submit a complete and successful application. CMS expects to award up to $1,333,333 per successful applicant, pending funding availability.
