The Coronavirus Aid, Response, and Economic Security Act

As of March 27, 2020, the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives have passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to sign it into law shortly. The CARES Act is the third installment in a series of federal legislative initiatives enacted in response to the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and is intended, in part, to provide financial relief to businesses.

In addition to providing a large cash infusion to hospitals and broader access to COVID-19 testing to individuals, the CARES Act aims to boost the economy with over $2 trillion in relief, ranging from individual rebates and small business loans to increased unemployment benefits and a wide variety of tax breaks.
