COVID-19 Federal Stimulus

To address the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19, the federal government enacted six stimulus bills. Together, these funds helped pay for emergency response, testing and contact tracing, health care, and vaccinations. These funds also supported the unemployed and K-12 schools. Families and individuals also benefited from expansions of the federal Child Tax Credit, Earned Income Tax Credit, and partial tax exemptions on unemployment benefits, as well as expanded financial assistance for health coverage. Combined with direct payments and other assistance to individuals and families, hospitals and medical providers, businesses, higher education institutions and college students, local housing authorities, airports, farmers, and local government, California and its economy are benefiting from approximately $642 billion provided through these stimulus bills.

Below is a detailed list of federal awards that can be filtered by whether the funds flow through the state or directly to a recipient, federal program or Assistance Listing, formerly known as Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA), and the recipient, to display the amount of federal stimulus funds that have been committed to date and the deadline for expenditure if available.
