What is the CARES Act?
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act is a trillion dollar stimulus bill passed in March 2020 in response to the overwhelming effects of COVID-19 on the economy. This bill provided funds for individuals, small businesses, organizations, and educational institutions impacted by the pandemic. These funds are meant to provide additional funding for resources to help combat the negative, ongoing effects of COVID-19 throughout the country.
