Seven States, Including California, Florida, and Georgia, to Issue Stimulus Payments to Their Residents.
Although the days of receiving $1,400 cheques from the Internal Revenue Service have ended, a handful of states are still intending to give stimulus to at least part of their residents.
Maine, California, Maryland, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, and Tennessee have all enacted legislation allowing for the distribution of cheques to a variety of groups, including teachers and low-income families.
To qualify for financial aid from the state, you must have already filed your 2020 tax return and meet all other qualifying standards. Here’s a look at who can expect to receive a small amount of financial support from the state.

First responders and educators, including teachers and principals, will receive a payment of up to $1,000 from the state of Florida this month.
Georgia, like Florida, will award a $1,000 stimulus bonus to teachers and principals in 2020 as a way of saying thank you for their efforts.
Even if Maine’s Christmas stimulus is the tiniest of the states, every little bit helps.

It’s not just teachers that are being targeted in Michigan. Applicants must be employed full-time as child-care professionals to be eligible for the $1,000 award.
Licensing providers can submit applications to the state on their own behalf, and they will pass the bonuses along to their staff.
