What we’re talking about here are state stimulus payments, which are different from the federal government’s ongoing assistance checks.
Stimulus Payments Amidst the Pandemic
For over two years, the way individuals in the United States have dealt with the coronavirus pandemic has varied depending on where they reside. The same may be said of the recovery from the pandemic . Because, of course, location plays a big role in determining when and who receives a fresh stimulus payment.
The latter are payments that are made to all Americans throughout the nation. In fact, more of these types of payments will be sent out in just two weeks. On December 15, millions of Americans will get their sixth and last child tax credit payment.
Meanwhile, we’ll look at some of the more localized stimulus measures throughout the nation below. Efforts that, to be sure, will become even more crucial as the status of the federal government’s planned monthly stimulus payments in 2022 remains unknown.
Stimulus Checks Around the Country
The types of stimulus-related payments we’ll talk about here range from back-to-work incentives to teacher bonus checks. By the way, this compilation isn’t a complete list of every conceivable stimulus check or associated benefit from every state and city around the nation.
In September, Ohio State University announced that it will disburse an additional $46 million in federal financial assistance to students. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, Ohio State has distributed more than $87 million in pandemic-related help to students. Thousands of them received emergency funds as part of that help.
Then there’s California, which has given lower- and middle-income individuals statewide stimulus payments of several hundred dollars. While states such as Arizona and Connecticut have given citizens who return to work $1,000 payouts. The Connecticut check is for employees who return to work after an eight-week layoff. The $1,000 payment in Arizona is for people who work part-time and for full-time labor is worth $2,000.
