Just hours ago, President Trump signed into law the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, or “CARES Act.”  The bill — Phase 3 of the COVID-19 federal aid package — was passed by voice vote in the House of Representatives this afternoon and on Wednesday by a unanimous (96-0) vote in the Senate.

The CARES Act $2 trillion price tag represents the largest aid package in U.S. history and contains many important provisions for individuals, businesses, nonprofits, and of course – healthcare.  Here is a breakdown of the measures we believe to be most important to families across the nation:

Individuals & Families



Pro-Life Provisions

Faith-Based Provisions 

While much more is included in the bill than we have listed here, we hope you find this summary informative and helpful.  This is most certainly a challenging time in the history of our nation, for every family, business and industry.  As we trust in the Lord day by day, may we also do all that we can to help “flatten the curve” and keep America safe.

You have no doubt heard of President Trump’s 15 Days to Slow the Spread initiative.  Americans are asked to help contain the coronavirus by practicing social distancing, good hygiene and avoiding discretionary travel.  The president’s 15-day initiative is in effect through Tuesday, March 31.  We hope you will join us in heeding the president’s recommendations to help keep Americans safe.

Thank you for reading, and for standing with us in faith during this trying time!
