HUD hosted a 2021 CARES Act Conference to help prepare for and respond to the Coronavirus pandemic. The entire conference library is now available on the 2021 CARES Act Conference page on HUD Exchange.

Topics varied across disciplines to give a wide range of knowledge on all topics related to the CARES Act.
