Millions of Americans will get unexpected stimulus payouts of $2,000 and $1,000 in the coming weeks. Several states want to help people who reside there as part of their state-level COVID-19 rehabilitation program. The bonus money will be divided among 14 organizations in 14 separate states.

The state of Arizona’s back-to-work program is available to unemployed residents. A $1,000 payment is available to those who return to part-time work. A $2,000 incentive may be available to those who return to full-time work.

Meanwhile, an online petition wanting to have $2,000 monthly stimulus payments is nearing its 3 million goal.

Petition Asks For More Federal Stimulus Payments

According to Newsweek (via MSN), an online petition asking $2,000 monthly stimulus cheques for the duration of the pandemic is just over 45,000 signatures away from surpassing its 3 million signature goal.

However, after a surge in support during a devastating COVID-19 outbreak caused by the Delta strain in the summer, excitement for the campaign has waned in the final stretch as cases and deaths continue to fall throughout the nation.

Stephanie Bonin, a restaurant owner in Denver, initiated a Change.org petition urging on the United States to take action. “Immediate payments of $2,000 for adults and $1,000 for children, as well as periodic checks for the duration of the crisis,” the House and Senate should approve legislation.

As of Saturday, the petition had received over 2,956,600 signatures, with just roughly 29,000 new signatures last month and 5,000 in the previous week. 

During the summer Delta wave, as families struggled to cope with the financial effects of the epidemic, the campaign gained significant popularity, amassing over 100,000 new voters in a week.

Who is Getting Up to $2,000 Surprise Payments?

California residents who had to file their 2020 tax forms by October 15 got the Golden State Stimulus, according to The Sun. Nearly half of the nine million individuals who got stimulus payments have received them as of October 31, with the remaining stimulus cheques being sent.

California residents earning $30,000 to $75,000 per year may receive $600, while those with minor children could get $1,100. Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont launched the Back to Work program. The state will release pay $1,000 in stimulus checks starting May 30, 2021 and ending December 31, 2021.

Other states have more severe requirements, such as when people applied for unemployment and how long they’ve been jobless. To be eligible for the stimulus payment, residents must also have obtained job.

Teachers and administrators in Florida will get $1,000 as part of the stimulus package for their commitment to education throughout the epidemic. Teachers and administrators in Georgia will get $1,000 as part of the stimulus package for their commitment to education throughout the epidemic.

While the chances of a fourth stimulus in all US states are little to none, residents of Maine in New England have been promised extra help. After November 15, the Maine State Tax Accessor will distribute $285 payments to taxpayers, resulting in 524,754 people getting a surprise check in the mail.
