This presentation will focus on state and municipal COVID-19 relief funds—and the significant resources at the disposal of state governments, particularly State Attorneys General, to bring enforcement actions similar to those of the DOJ for violating state-implemented false claims acts (“FCAs”). The discussion will also outline some common-sense steps that applicants can take when seeking state or local COVID-19 relief funds to avoid running afoul of state FCAs. Please join Peter C.
