Covid-19 Fraud Enforcement Task Force Requests Increased Funding

On April 9, 2024, the DOJ Covid-19 Fraud Task Force published a 2024 Report detailing the efforts in addressing fraudulent schemes targeting Covid-19 relief programs. The Task Force has seized and forfeited $1.4 billion in fraudulent CARES Act funding, resulting in over three thousand criminal convictions. The Covid-19 Task Force requests from the legislature increased funding to pursue fraudulent schemes and an extension to the statute of limitations for fraud offenses connected to Covid-19.
