More than a trillion dollars in federal funds were made available to low- and middle-income Americans through three separate stimulus checks. A fourth federal stimulus payment is possible, but the odds are stacked against us.
As the COVID-19 Delta variant spreads across the country, some government states are distributing payments. According to CBS News, more than 25 million people will receive direct assistance from several states that have used their stimulus funds or surpluses to help specific residents, such as low-income families, that began in September this year.
Several states in the US, according to MARCA, have their financial aid and stimulus checks to support their citizens. Because, unlike the last time, the stimulus check does not come from the federal government. A person’s state of residence now plays a significant role. Some recipients of the state’s fourth stimulus checks have already received them.
There is a wide range of financial assistance available in the United States right now, not just stimulus checks. Extended benefits programs, such as child tax credits, and other tax breaks, are also available. MARCA has provided a detailed stimulus update for 50 states. The following are some states that are still providing aids.
Six States With Updated Aids
California Stimulus. As a result of its tax structure, California is the only state to have issued a stimulus check using its funds, dubbed the Golden State Stimulus. Between $30,000 and $75,000 per year, residents can receive a $500 or 600 dollar benefit, and families with dependent children can receive a $500 benefit. It was expected that Golden State Stimulus II recipients would receive checks totaling between $600 and $1,100 by the end of the month. If you didn’t file your taxes on time or were supposed to receive a paper check, you may receive your new stimulus check in November.
Colorado Stimulus. Anyone who received unemployment benefits between March 15, 2020, and October 24, 2020, will receive $375 in compensation. On the other hand, those who earn more than $500 a week in-work benefits will be ineligible for the program. Cash assistance (TANF), child care assistance, employment assistance, energy assistance (LEAP), and food assistance (SNAP) are still available in Colorado.
Alabama Stimulus. Covid-19 relief checks for Alabamans are still in doubt for the time being. The state government does not believe that additional stimulus funds are necessary because of the state’s low unemployment rate. COVID-19 relief is not being provided to residents or businesses by the state government’s ‘Altogether’ campaign.
Alaska Stimulus. An additional 13 to 20 weeks of benefits may be available to Alaska residents under the Federal-State Extended Benefits program. Only a few people are eligible, and the amount of money previously claimed from the fund is a determining factor. Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy is pushing for the transfer of additional oil production revenues to the state’s pockets.
New Mexico. The state of New Mexico has established a $5 million fund to assist its citizens in the aftermath of COVID-19. Fewer than a handful of applicants will be chosen for funding, prioritized for low-income families. Up to $750 in financial aid is available. As recently as October, people were still able to apply, but the deadline has now passed. Until then, it’s just a matter of waiting until November.
Florida Stimulus. The fourth stimulus payment in Florida was a $1,000 payment. Teachers and first responders were the only employees to benefit from this. Workers in Florida were given a one-time payment as a thank you for their efforts during the pandemic.
