State officials are asking Congress for additional funding to help Minnesotans during the COVID-19 pandemic. DEED Commissioner Steve Grove:

“It is critical that Washington acts. We are in crisis and the fact that we no longer have that same safety net we did when the first shutdowns happened across the country…we don’t have any stimulus for small businesses, for state and local governments. It’s a very real issue.”

Current Federal CARES Act funding is set to expire at the end of December.
