On Friday, March 27, President Trump signed into law H.R. 748, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) to address the catastrophic impact of COVID-19 on the U.S. economy. The CARES Act is a US$2.2 trillion stimulus package, consisting of two sections. Division A contains a range of stimulus measures, including direct assistance to families and workers, expanded unemployment insurance, funding for hospitals and health care providers, financial assistance to small businesses, and loans and guarantees for other severely distressed sectors of the economy. Division B provides over US$339 billion in an emergency supplemental appropriations package, more than 80% of which is for state and local governments and communities.
