The United States Congress after months of political bickering passed a long-awaited $900bn package of the covid19 pandemic aid.
Senators approved the bill late on Monday, hours after it was passed by the House of Representatives.
The 900bn dollars aid includes direct payments for many Americans and support for businesses and unemployment programmes.
During plenary session in the House, the bill was passed by a vote of 359 to 53 and in the Senate, it passed by 92 to 6.
The passage comes at a time when many Covid-19 relief programmes in America were set to expire at the end of the month. Already, about 12 million Americans were at risk of losing access to unemployment benefits.
The aid is to accompany a larger, $1.4tn spending bill to fund government operations over the next nine months.
President Donald Trump is expected to sign the package into law.
