A package of spending incentives for American workers and consumers was unveiled by President Donald Trump on Monday, and will be announced by the president at the end of the month.
The White House said the package will provide $250,000 to help low-income Americans buy vacation packages, and $250 million for small businesses and workers to pay for vacation.
The package also includes $250 billion in stimulus money for small business owners, a $100 billion boost for home building, $100 million for the Transportation Security Administration, $1.5 billion for a $1 billion fund for low-wage workers and an increase of $1 million for food banks.
It was also announced the White House would spend $2 billion on food stamps for low and moderate-income households, and an additional $2.5 million to fund programs to assist the elderly.
The president has been in office less than two weeks, but his plan for infrastructure was already underway when he took office in January.
Trump’s plan, however, was aimed at creating infrastructure and reducing poverty.
The spending package, which Trump signed into law on Tuesday, was a response to a series of federal court rulings in which a number of states had blocked his efforts to overhaul the nation’s health care system.
Those rulings led to the federal government announcing plans to end its “Obamacare” health insurance mandate, which had been in place since 2014.
A number of Trump’s first moves on infrastructure have been to repeal President Barack Obama’s $1 trillion infrastructure plan, which he called a “fraudulent, disastrous, waste of time and money.”
He also took steps to allow states to enact their own plans to provide grants to help fund infrastructure projects.
However, the administration said it will be “a priority to get these bills through Congress and implement them before the end-of-year deadline for the first phase of the stimulus.”
The package includes a $500 million boost to construction projects and $500 billion for infrastructure.
The money will be used to create $20 billion in grants to states to help them build new roads, bridges, tunnels and other projects.
The new stimulus package also contains $150 million for infrastructure loans for businesses.
The administration said the funds will also go toward the construction of a $2 trillion bridge over the Missouri River to connect New Orleans with Washington, D.C.
The money is also going to help pay for infrastructure improvements and new projects, such as the $300 million National Infrastructure Reinvestment Act, a bill that would give state and local governments more control over their infrastructure projects, including tolls.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development will also receive $150 billion in additional funds to help lower-income homeowners get loans to purchase homes.
Trump said in January that he would “begin the process of renegotiating the terms of those loans” but said he would not give the government a deadline to renegotiate them.
