Washington DC Steps Up: The CARES Act
The CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Stimulus) signed into law on March 27, 2020 represents a 3rd round of direct Federal assistance in the face of severe economic dislocation. The Act focuses on providing monetary and other financial relief to individuals and businesses and follows up on $8.3 billion of emergency medically related funding, as well as paid sick leave for individuals. Several provisions warrant attention given their potential impact on individual and family financial plans.
