Rep. Sarbanes message follows:

“I hope that you and your family are keeping safe and staying healthy during this difficult time. In the face of many challenges, I am confident we will emerge a stronger, fairer and more unified country.

“Recognizing that so many Marylanders continue to suffer from the health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, I will keep pushing to extend and strengthen key resources that Congress delivered in the historic Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

“These included:

  • Direct payments for individuals and families;
  • Extended and enhanced unemployment insurance;
  • Housing assistance for renters and homeowners;
  • Loans and grants for small businesses;
  • Student loan debt relief;
  • Funding for our hospitals and health care providers;
  • Incentives for the development of vaccines and treatments;
  • Support for COVID-19 testing capacity and contact tracing;
  • Relief for state and local governments who employ essential workers and first responders; and
  • Resources to ensure free, fair and safe elections in November.

“While I work to advance these important priorities in Washington, my team is available to help you navigate federal agencies and access important benefits. I encourage you to use the resource guide (available online: https://sarbanes.house.gov/sites/sarbanes.house.gov/files/2020-MAILER_HereToHelp_FINAL.pdf) and to reach out to my office for any assistance you need.
