The Consolidated Appropriations Act – What It Means For You

Late in the day on December 20, 2020, leaders in Congress announced that they had reached an agreement on a new round of relief for the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and economic stimulus. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 finally took shape after several days of negotiations between the Democrats and GOP on Capitol Hill. The President finally received the bill on Christmas Day, and showed no sign he intended to sign the bill. Over the long holiday weekend, members of Congress on both sides of the aisle urged the President to sign the bill. Finally, late on December 27, he signed the bill into law.

What This Means For You
The act includes several extensions of popular provisions of earlier COVID relief and stimulus acts passed in 2020. This includes additional loans under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) (including the allowance of a second round of loans for certain small businesses), relief for the hard-hit transportation industry, additional funding for programs related to vaccines and virus testing, and further expansion of federal unemployment assistance (providing $300 a week in unemployment payments, half of the amount received under the acts passed in the spring).
