The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020 is an approximately $2 trillion bipartisan economic stability and revitalization package that was signed into law on March 27th, 2020.

Montana, like many states, is feeling the strain and depletion of resources within our local hospitals.

Luckily the wider Montana community has stepped up to the plate to fill the need by sewing, injecting plastic molds, and 3D printing reusable medical masks for local hospitals.
