The Child Tax Credit seems to be the only available stimulus check at the moment. The qualifying families will get their fifth installment of the check on 15th November. 

Those payments will technically be an advance on a 2021 tax credit. Eligible parents will receive $3,600 for each child under 6 and $3,000 for each child under age 18. Until now, the credit was up to only $2,000 per child under age 17.
At least half of the amount will go out over the summer and the remainder will be lumped in with next year’s tax refund. The enhanced portion of the credit will be available for single parents with annual incomes up to $75,000 and joint filers making up to $150,000 a year.
