Minority leader Chuck Schumer has proposed $350 billion in aid for communities of color amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Minority leader Chuck Schumer has proposed $350 billion in aid for communities of color amid the COVID-19 pandemic.Minority leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Democrats unveiled a proposal of spending $350 billion in Black and minority communities over the next five years in immediate and long-term investments to help offset racial inequality under the Economic Justice Act. The legislation seeks to deliver ten financial investments over five years to communities of color to support various initiatives such as childcare, mental health, and job development groups, which have been hit the hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Out of $350 billion, $200 billion, comes from unspent funds from the CARES Act, the $2 trillion federal stimulus package signed into law by President Donald Trump in March 2020. According to Democrats, the proposal aims to reduce the impacts of the economic destruction caused by the pandemic that has disproportionately affected minority communities.
