In this policy brief, the distribution of CARES Act funding by states aimed at supporting the direct care workforce is examined to see how the funding was distributed between rural and urban counties. We highlight state-by-state differences in two states, Minnesota and Illinois, in CARES Act funding for the direct care workforce and prioritization of funding toward rural counties. These states were selected due to the availability and transparency of data regarding funding awards.
