Signed into law just recently, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) will make available an initial $2.2 trillion worth of government funds to mitigate the economic effects of COVID-19.

Private lawyers and bounty hunters will be watching closely as well, with many of them seeking opportunities to cash in on a bounty as a whistleblower.
