To address the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19, the federal government enacted six stimulus bills. Together, these funds have helped pay for emergency response, testing and contact tracing, health care, and vaccinations. These funds also directly supported the unemployed and K-12 schools. Families and individuals have 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 $639 billion provided through these stimulus bills.
