CARES Act offers federal financial aid to businesses and individuals affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This was signed into law in March 2020 and was a stimulus bill worth $2 trillion designed to stabilize the economy.

    President Trump signed legislation on March 27, 2020, that allocated billions of dollars for hospitals and small businesses. The act’s supporters argued that the economy was already in a recession or would soon be.
