 - $15 billion Targeted EIDL Grants
 - $10 billion to recipients that hadn’t received the rest of the $10k from the December Relief Bill
 - $5 billion is being set aside for businesses ($5,000/business) with 50% economic loss, employing not more than 10 people even if they received money in the December Bill
 - $25 billion New Bar and Restaurant Program
 - $7 billion for Paycheck Protection Program
 - $175 million for the Community Navigator Program to provide outreach to help businesses

The Senate passed version also includes an extension of Unemployment Insurance through September 6, 2021, but decreases the supplemental from $400 to $300. Additionally, the Senate language does not include a $15 minimum wage mandate, a significant difference from the House language.
