The legislation assures that college emergency grants to students authorized by the CARES Act are not taxed.

Republican Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick’s office announced the allocation of the local relief grant this week. Bucks County was one of only seven in the entire state to receive the federal funds through the program.
Under the CARES Act, the county can use the funds to cover necessary expenditures due to COVID-19 that were not in the 2020 spending budget and incurred between March 1 and December 30.
County officials have said in recent weeks that COVID-19 has caused numerous unexpected costs since the pandemic began.
Another round of COVID-19 relief legislation passed through Congress without addressing the needs of revenue-distressed 501(c)(6) associations, but there are encouraging signs that the message from ASAE and others is being heard on Capitol Hill.
As our nation celebrates the essential workers on the front line who are sacrificing so much to care for others during this unprecedented crisis, we must also remember the essential workers who are often hidden from the public eye: the child welfare case managers and child protective investigators who protect vulnerable children. The home visitors who support struggling families. The counselors who provide literal lifelines to children coping with mental illnesses.
