CARES Act Resources

K·Coe Isom has been closely tracking actions taken by the government to help clients alleviate the economic damage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We have been assisting them with their efforts to identify and utilize programs and funds that best meet their specific needs.

While significant attention was given to opportunities like the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act includes numerous other potentially useful resources for health care providers, businesses, schools, and non-profits as they navigate financial and operational challenges.

In an effort to help its clients, K·Coe has summarized the funding programs and opportunities that are most likely to benefit them.  This is not a comprehensive list of all CARES Act programs and supplemental funds available.  Below, we have provided a summary of resources available for:

It’s important to note that some of these agencies and their associated programs have issued thorough and complete guidance, while others have yet to do so. Information and guidance is being delivered and announced by various agencies on an ongoing basis. This compilation reflects available information as of May 28, 2020.
