The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES) is a $2 trillion stimulus package to provide financial relief to individuals, families, and businesses and was signed into law. The 2020 coronavirus stimulus package will deliver relief through a range of measures, including an advanced tax rebate to taxpayers. 

To name a few things that The Cares Act has expanded, Student Loan Payment Relief, Increase in Unemployment Payments, Financial Assistance Provided for Eligible Non-Profits and Self-Employed Individuals, and one of the biggest ones that Turbo Tax is hearing a lot of questions about, is the stimulus check to help people in need right now.
