Information on the CARES Act (Federal Stimulus)
Last week ended with the passage and signing of the $2 trillion federal relief package (CARES Act). The bill is nearly 900 pages and has a lot of detailed information for state officials to sort through. I will provide regular updates as we learn more about how this money will help Oregonians.
Kudos to Senator Jeff Merkley and his team for putting together the following links and information sheets regarding parts of the federal stimulus package. They are really helpful.
- Unemployment insurance
- Direct household payments
- State Department
- Hospitals and health systems
- Food insecurity and nutrition
- K-12 education
