What is the Families First Coronavirus Response Act?

In March 2020, President Trump signed into law the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, the initial coronavirus relief bill aimed at assisting families living in the United States.

Small employers receive new tax credits and federal payroll-tax relief to pay for the new mandatory benefits.
