Available United States Government COVID Relief Funds

To help navigate the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, and provide fast and direct economic assistance, Congress passed The CARES Act (2020), and The Consolidated Appropriations Act (2021).

The CARES Act implemented a variety of programs to address issues related to the onset of the COVID-19 Pandemic, such as the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF), and the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER Fund).

The Consolidated Appropriations Act continued many of these programs by adding new allocations and guidance to address issues related to the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as the ESSER II Fund, the American Rescue Plan (ARP Act), and the ARP ESSER III Fund.

The CARES Act was passed on March 25, 2020 and signed into law on March 27, 2020. The Consolidated Appropriations Act (2021) was passed on December 21, 2020 and signed into law on December 27, 2020.

With the extension of the deadline for organizations to use CARES Act funding, and the addition of The Consolidated Appropriations Act funding, it’s important to understand the facts as well as your options for using the funding. Considerations for using funds to protect your communication channels with helpful public records software like ArchiveSocial continue to be crucial in 2021. Explore our available Covid-19 and CARES Act resources, and chat us any questions you have regarding CARES or other COVID relief funding uses.
