Amid the global COVID-19 pandemic, the national financial aid program in the United States helped millions of households in the country. The three rounds of checks were delivered in 2020 and 2021, and it was announced that there will be no federal stimulus check in the country. This caused the launch of state and local financial aid programs, and we are starting to see these programs become a reality; eleven states are set to receive money in the upcoming months, and here are the details:
Which states will receive the stimulus check?
With two state stimulus checks already issued to eligible California residents, a third check is now in the works. Governor Gavin Newsom has made a proposal to send prepaid debit cards of $400 to California drivers, to offset the high costs associated with driving. The card will be a gas card for each vehicle registered to a person, with a two-car and two-card limit.
Idaho residents will receive a 2020 tax rebate for $75, or 12% – the greater sum of the two. The money will be sent via a paper check or direct deposit.
