The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act—the CARES Act—provides more than $2 trillion in emergency relief intended to stabilize the United States economy and help protect employees and businesses during the COVID-19 crisis. Among other benefits, the sweeping new law offers nearly $300 billion in one-time payments to individuals and families, $260 billion in unemployment insurance benefits, $377 billion for small businesses, $500 billion for corporations, $140 billion to support the U.S. health system, and more.

This webinar series will address some of the impacts and implications of the CARES Act for individuals, small businesses, and the health care sector.

Among other topics, speakers will address:

  • the one-time payments
  • implications for retirement accounts and charitable contributions
  • tax and IRS-related impacts
  • obligations and opportunities for small businesses
  • funding for screening, treatment, and vaccines
  • access to care for uninsured, undocumented, and minority communities
  • implications for Medicaid/Medicare
  • funding for medical equipment health care facilities
  • housing
  • commercial real estate
  • bankruptcy

Speakers presenting in this series include faculty and professionals affiliated with Texas A&M University School of Law.

Each one-hour webinar allow attendees to ask questions of our experts. 

While the panelists are all attorneys, they will be discussing the law generally, and nothing in the webinar should be considered as legal advice. Attendees should consult their own legal advisor to address their own unique circumstances.
