Stimulus Check Update: Here’s How to Avail Basic Income Program Of $6,500
There’s currently no proposal for another stimulus check, but there may be options to avail other programs. Here are the other programs on the table you can look into:
In Oakland, California, around 600 families will be allocated a sum of $500 monthly payments for around 18 months under the Oakland Resilient Families program.
In the city of Los Angeles, 2,000 city residents will be issued a payment of $1,000 within the incoming year under the Basic Income Guaranteed: LA Economic Assistance Pilot.
Chicago also has the universal basic income pilot, which will issue a sum of $500 to low-income families. Lori Lightfoot, the Mayor of Chicago, has referred to it as the most progressive budget in the history of this City Hall.
Other places that have a program in place are Long Beach, Sacramento, and San Diego in California, along with Baltimore, Chelsea, Columbia, Denver, Madison, Newark, Saint Paul, and Tacoma.
The government is also still sending payments to people whom the IRS did not previously have enough information for but who recently filed tax returns.
Many of those are very low-income people who aren’t normally required to file tax returns because their incomes fall below the filing threshold were encouraged to file this year to claim the stimulus money they are eligible for.
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.
