GovExec Daily: How the Treasury Department Will Distribute Stimulus Money

Courtney Bublé and Katherine McIntire Peters join the podcast to discuss the logistics of getting money to millions of Americans with a staff who is largely working from home.

The $2 trillion stimulus plan that passed Congress last week means the Treasury Department is now tasked with disbursing stimulus money to Americans, while also dealing with the extended tax season and administering the usual Treasury Department functions. That’s a big task for an agency that, like every other department in the federal government, is already operating at a lowered capacity due to the coronavirus isolation.

Courtney Bublé and Katherine McIntire Peters joined the podcast to discuss how the 2008 stimulus checks were sent, how the 2020 ones will be sent and how Treasury will handle this task.
