NEARLY a million Covid stimulus checks worth $1100 each are being sent out to Californian residents through the New Year.
As the pandemic continues, one state is continuing to lend a helping hand to households who have been affected by the chronic coronavirus disruption — find out who gets one.
According to news reports, about 794,000 checks worth a collective $568 million are being mailed out to eligible state residents through December 31.
But only residents of California for more than half the 2020 tax year qualify.
This makes them distinct from the next wave of child tax credit payments poised to go out to millions of Americans in just a few weeks’ time.
A salary of $30,000 to $75,000 per year qualified California residents to receive $600, and $1,100 for those with children under the age of 18.
The checks are part of the state’s Golden State II program thanks to the around $12billion in coronavirus relief approved by Governor Gavin Newsom.
"The Golden State Stimulus is key to lifting up those hit hardest by the pandemic and supporting California’s economic recovery, putting money directly in the hands of folks who will spend it on basic needs and within their local communities," Newsom said in a statement at the time.
