The Coronavirus Child Care and Education Relief Act (CCCERA), introduced by Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), ranking member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), is comprehensive legislation that provides critical assistance to the families and students impacted most by the COVID-19 pandemic. This legislation includes much-needed funding for states to avoid massive cuts to education and other key services families need now more than ever—including money to provide internet and computers to millions of disconnected households.
