In December, Congress approved a $900 billion COVID relief package (known as the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, or CRRSA), which included $82 billion for education. Similarly, the Small Business Administration (SBA) reopened the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) in January for new and certain existing borrowers. This new round includes relief for small businesses for operations and worker-protection expenditures. 

Includes Improved Air Quality, PPE, Disinfection Supplies 

Both measures provide resources to address minimizing the spread of COVID within school and office buildings as facilities reopen. Approved expenditures covered by these relief packages include improving air quality, purchasing PPE and other supplies needed to clean and disinfect, and training staff on the best ways to sanitize and properly use PPE.
