ABA: The American Bankers Association

In March, Congress passed—and President Trump signed into law—the CARES Act, a $2 trillion economic relief package to provide assistance to American consumers and businesses struggling as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. A provision of the law includes sending government payments to eligible recipients who meet specific criteria. The government will rely on our modern banking system to deliver the payments quickly, efficiently and safely. This page provides banks with the latest news on the economic impact payments, government agency guidance and resources and consumer-facing tips and information.
