Government Resources, email Garamendi March 28, 2020 (will update with new email)
America is facing an unprecedented public health and economic emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A rising death toll and expanding quarantine procedures require immediate action from Congress and the public. As the representative of California’s 3rd District, my priority is to protect the health and safety of our communities and ensure that the individual families, workers and small businesses who need relief most come first.
I am pleased to announce that today Congress passed H.R. 748, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the largest stimulus package in U.S. history. It provides a $2 trillion dollar investment in American workers and builds on the swift, bipartisan action that Congress has already taken to move two critical pieces of coronavirus response legislation into law. Included in this legislation are provisions to provide individual direct payments to working Americans, support for small businesses, expanded Unemployment Insurance benefits, student loan relief and more.
For additional details and answers to some of the most frequently asked questions regarding the new individual direct payment and small business relief provisions you can visit my website here and here. Additionally, I have put together a comprehensive list of tools you can use to learn more about the resources available to you in Yolo County during this time of crisis.
