There is some good news for Americans, and a select few will receive another stimulus check before the holidays.
The federal government's fourth stimulus check has been canceled, but some states will still be handing out cash to residents in time for the holidays.
The bonus cash comes after three payments were mailed as part of Joe Biden's US rescue plan.
Governor Ned Lamont stated that "This one-time bonus payment will assist some of those workers in paying for the essentials they need to return to work, such as childcare. This is the most recent tool in our arsenal for maximizing our state's recovery from the pandemic."
The states listed below have passed legislation to issue stimulus checks:
In December, Florida will provide $1,000 stimulus money to first responders, most teachers, and educators who work with students.
Residents in California who earned less than $75,000 in 2020 will receive another round of $1,100 stimulus checks. You must have paid your taxes before Oct. 15.
Teachers and principals in Georgia will get $1,000 in stimulus money for their commitment to educating throughout the pandemic.
Residents of Michigan will get $1,000 bonuses for full-time child care professionals, and Licensed child care providers can apply and go to michigan.gov/childcare to fill out an application. Child care workers will not be required to apply for bonuses because their employers will pay them directly.
Full-time teachers will receive a $1,000 hazard pay extra, while part-time instructors would receive $500. They should receive their checks before January 1st.
