Covid Stimulus Watch now contains more than 30,000 grant and loan awards from a dozen CARES Act programs. The latest additions include data relating to airports and public broadcasting stations as well as more on healthcare providers.
The Airport Grant Program includes awards as high as $338 million for Atlanta’s airport and more than 400 others in amounts of $500,000 or more. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting has distributed $75 million to more than 500 public radio and television stations to help them weather the financial impact of the pandemic.
We also continue to expand our coverage of assistance to healthcare providers. That includes two additional programs: CARES Supplemental Funding for Health Centers and COVID-19 Claims Reimbursement to Health Care Providers and Facilities for Testing and Treatment of the Uninsured Program. At the same time, we have captured the latest update of the amounts received by hospitals and other Healthcare Providers through the Provider Relief Fund.
We are also preparing ourselves for the coming release of a massive dataset of awards through the Paycheck Protection Program.
