Extension of CARES Act Must Happen Now
NUCA National and NUCA New Jersey have reached out to Congressional leadership seeking an extension of the CARES Act - resources allocated by Congress in March for coronavirus relief. Extending the deadline from this December to Dec. 31, 2021 will keep NUCA members on the job building new infrastructure such as expanded broadband services and other essential projects.
The $150 billion Coronavirus Relief Fund came with a few stipulations, including a requirement that the payments from the Fund only be used to cover expenses that were incurred between March 1, 2020, and December 30, 2020, when allowable use of CARES Act funding expires. We are urging our New Jersey delegation to push their leadership for this much needed extension.
