After an eight-month, stop-and-start test of endurance, Congress passed a $900 billion COVID-relief and $1.4 trillion government funding package that gives critical pandemic aid to Americans, while securing federal agency operations through September 2021. While no additional state and local aid was provided, an extension of the deadline by which the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) resources must be spent was extended to Dec. 31, 2021.

The mammoth measure, which the president signed into law on Dec. 27, will provide another round of direct payments, enhanced unemployment benefits, education funding, and aid to sectors still reeling from the economic fallout of the pandemic. CLICK HERE for further details.
