The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) were designed to provide economic relief for businesses and workers severely impacted by COVID-19. NABTU lobbied very aggressively to ensure each bill contained policies that would help the working families of the construction industry as well as its contractors.
