[COVID-19] Cares Act Relief Payment


As per the CARES Act of 2020, the Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are
providing payment relief to individuals in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Domestic violence
advocates have raised a number of concerns about barriers that survivors will face accessing the funds
to which they are entitled. Unfortunately, at this time, the IRS has not provided processes to ensure
survivors can access their funds when they are issued using the information on a recently filed joint
income tax return filed with an abuser. NNEDV and our partners continue to work with the Administration. In the meantime, we have outlined the existing processes that help individuals secure their funds.
