President Trump today signed the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act’’ (CARES Act), a bipartisan stimulus bill to help Americans affected by the coronavirus pandemic. SCCAOR would like to send a huge thank you to C.A.R. and NAR for all their lobbying efforts towards this bill. Their work helped ensure that small business owners, the self-employed and independent contractors were included in the federal response to this national crisis. This package includes forgivable SBA loans for independent contractors as well as Pandemic Unemployment assistance.

For more information on how to access benefits included in the CARES Act, see C.A.R.’s FAQs on Financial Resources for REALTORS® and Financial Resources for Brokers.
