On March 27, 2020, the President of the United States signed into law the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, a $2 trillion stimulus bill—the largest emergency relief aid package passed in U.S. history.

While the legislation provides direct cash transfers to assist workers; significant increases in unemployment insurance benefits; $500 billion in lending program assistance for businesses; and zero interest loans for small businesses employing fewer than 500 people, among other benefits, the economic impact on the Black community will be devastatingly reminiscent of the disproportionate recovery provided during the Great Recession.

Join us for an important conversation about the economic realities currently facing African Americans and their families, and what they need to do to best take advantage of the CARES Act.onlnonlinonhttps://zoom.us/webinar/register/5015870439054/WN_r30jnU9eR3-1uLMlyfQiaghttps://zoom.us/webinar/register/5015870439054/WN_r30jnU9eR3-1uLMlyfQiaghttps://zoom.us/webinar/register/5015870439054/WN_r30jnU9eR3-1uLMlyfQiaghttps://zoom.us/webinar/register/5015870439054/WN_r30jnU9eR3-1uLMlyfQiaghttps://zoom.us/webinar/register/5015870439054/WN_r30jnU9eR3-1uLMlyfQiag
