An extension of unemployment benefits: Jobless claims will be available longer, and benefits will be improved for four months. Furloughed workers and freelancers are also eligible.

$150B for state and local governments.

$500B in general corporate aid. $425B of that will be allocated by the Fed through loans to distressed companies. The other $75B is earmarked for hard-hit industries like travel and leisure.
