CARES 2020 | Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020 and the Coronavirus Response and Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 provided fast and direct economic assistance for American workers, families, small businesses, and industries.

In 2020, the Municipality of Anchorage received $156 million in federal funds to provide support to individuals and families in need as the community navigated the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Anchorage Assembly has allocated these funds to relief, response and support efforts in the community. They have been divided into the following priority areas:

  • Economic Stimulus: these programs offer support for residents and businesses.
  • Family Support: these programs offer support for families, children, caregivers, and dependents.
  • Housing & Homelessness: these programs offer support for renters, landlords, home and property owners, and individuals experiencing homelessness.
  • Public Health & Safety: these programs offer support for resident health, wellness, and safety.
  • Community Investments: these programs offer support for long standing community infrastructure and programs that will continue to improve quality of life for Anchorage municipal residents.
  • Direct Municipal Response: these programs offer support for the Municipality of Anchorage for resources allocated to keep residents safe.​
