Congress has passed a $1.9 trillion stimulus bill that will provide direct payments and extended unemployment benefits to struggling Americans and badly needed funds for struggling homeowners, housing providers and small businesses, including REALTORS®. President Biden is expected to sign the bill shortly before current benefits expire on Sunday.

C.A.R. has advocated for many of the provisions that would provide meaningful relief to REALTORS® including extensions of Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) benefits and additional funding for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). The law will also provide direct payments of $1,400 to most Americans and mortgage and rental assistance. 

Specifically, the law will:

Unemployment Benefits and Direct Payments

  • Provide $1,400 stimulus checks to most Americans, phased out for higher earners.  Individuals making up to $75,000 and married couples filing jointly making up to $150,000 will receive the full $1,400 per person, which will be phased out for higher incomes up to $80,000 for individuals and $160,000 for married couples filing jointly.
  • Extend the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program and increased Pandemic Unemployment Compensation of $300 weekly through Sept. 6, 2021.
  • Expand the child tax credit to $3,600 for each child under age 6 and $3,000 for each child age 6-18. Currently, qualifying families can receive a credit of up to $2,000 per child under age 17.

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

  • Provide an additional $7 billion for forgivable PPP loans.
  • Provide $15 billion for the Emergency Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program, which provides long-term, low-interest loans from the Small Business Administration. Severely impacted small businesses with 10 or fewer employees will be given priority for some of the money.

Housing and Rental Assistance

  • Provide $21.55 billion to states and local governments for rental assistance on top of the $25 billion allocated in December.
  • Provide $10 billion for mortgage assistance.
