Webinar: Cash Infusions: Stability Now, Security Later
The CARES Act’s provision to send $1,200 to people marks a notable shift in political willingness to give people money – and it refuted long-held skepticism about whether low-income people know what’s best in how to spend their money.
Does the CARES Act reflect only the extreme needs of the moment? Or are we entering a new era of increased agreement about the importance of money as a foundational support?
