State Fiscal Responses to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

5/24/2020

fiscal map

As the global and national response to the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, dominates public attention, state legislatures are taking steps to address budgetary and economic threats.

This page outlines state budget legislation to prepare for and respond to the coronavirus through supplemental appropriations, rainy day fund transfers and economic measures.  

Federal Action 

On March 18, the Families First Coronavirus Aid Package was signed into law. The bill includes free virus testing for those who are uninsured, emergency paid sick leave, expanded family and medical leave programs, unemployment assistance, food aid and federal funding for Medicaid. 

President Donald Trump declared a national emergency on March 13 in response to the coronavirus epidemic. The declaration allows the administration to use the Stafford Act, a federal law governing disaster-relief efforts. The declaration is expected to make $50 billion in emergency funding available to states and territories. 

The emergency declaration follows an $8.3 billion emergency coronavirus aid package signed by the president on March 6. At least $1.05 billion of the previous aid package will go to state, local and tribal efforts through grants and cooperative agreements with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or as reimbursements from the federal government. The initial federal aid package was focused largely on public health concerns. To learn more about congressional appropriation to states, check out this NCSL Blog.

A third phase of federal coronavirus relief, the Coronavirus, Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, was signed into law on March 27. The relief package allocates an estimated $2.2 trillion to battle the harmful effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The package is the biggest fiscal stimulus package in modern American history. State and local governments will receive $150 billion, through the Coronavirus Relief Fund, to help them fund the unanticipated costs of fighting the pandemic. Additionally, the bill establishes a $500 lending fund for businesses, states and cities. Eligible taxpayers will receive s a $1,200 direct payment and $500 for each dependent child. To learn more about the CARES stimulus package, check out NCSL's summary.

For more information on the $150 billion Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) the U.S. Department of Treasury issued guidance for how state and local governments may spend the Fund. The Department of Treasury also posted an FAQ page

NCSL has hosted a series of calls with U.S. Treasury officials, legislative fiscal staff and legislators to discuss acceptable ways to spend CRF funds. In addition to spending on public health and safety, state policymakers have looked at ways to address other unexpected spending needs. Check out NCSL's recent blog to learn more. 

A $484 billion, Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act, or "phase 3.5" coronavirus federal relief package was signed into law on April 24. The package provides $310 billion in funding to replenish the Small Business Administration's Paycheck Protection Program, which ran out of funding a few weeks after the program was initially created through the CARES Act. Additionally, the measure includes $75 billion for hospitals, $25 billion for COVID-19 testing, and $60 billion for emergency disaster loans and grants. For more information on the latest relief package check out NCSL's recent blog.  

State Action 

Legislatures are moving quickly to ensure agencies and local governments have the funds to prepare and respond to the coronavirus outbreak. Several states have enacted legislation that either appropriates additional funding for coronavirus-related tasks or authorizes a transfer of funds from the state's rainy day fund. Below is a chart outlining state budget legislation in response to COVID-19. To learn more about enacted state budget legislation in response to COVID-19, check out this NCSL Blog

NCSL's hosted a “COVID-19: Fiscal and Economic Issues” webinar that discussed options for states, an update on federal responses that may help states and their citizens navigate the pandemic, and what the economic crisis means for state governments. Click here to view the webinar.
