Understanding the CARES Act:
COVID-19 Benefits for Refugees and Asylees
On March 27, 2020, Congress passed the CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act). To ensure refugees, asylees, and the organizations that serve them understand the available benefits, Refugee Council USA, We Are All America and National Partnership for New Americans hosted a webinar, now available online.
In addition to providing direct support to individuals and families, the CARES Act also benefits small businesses and nonprofits. Learn how to apply for "forgivable loans" (grants) to ensure our refugee-owned businesses and refugee-serving nonprofits stay financially stable during the pandemic.
Topics Covered Included:
- Direct Cash Payments to Individuals
- Unemployment Insurance During the Pandemic
- Paid Family / Medical Leave
- Help for Small Businesses and Nonprofits
- Additional Resources
