In the United States, some states have designated the option of giving stimulus checks to those affected economically to combat inflation.
For example, in Alaska, the Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend Program is being offered. Thanks to this program, the tax revenue from oil extraction is provided to the residents.
In this sense, the applicants who managed to qualify for 2023 received approximately $3284.00 USD. This payment is non-taxable, but your request must be submitted by March 31, 2022.
Other States and Requirements for the Stimulus Check
Therefore, the eligibility requirements that are handled are the following: Be a resident of Alaska and not have been incarcerated during the year 2022.
Same is the case with those selected, and whose application appears as “Eligible-Not Paid”. People associated with this group will get money from 20 April to 18 May.
In California, some families are receiving funding through the Pathway to Income Equity Pilot Program. Through this program, 305 out of 6,450 applicants who reside in Sonoma County were selected. He receives $500.00 USD per month over a period of two years.
Here the eligibility requirement is that the selected people have been affected by the pandemic and have at least one dependent below the age of 6 years. In addition, their family income must be less than 185% of the federal poverty level.
Although Maine is not sending stimulus checks, it does provide payment of up to $450.00 USD for winter heating costs.
Some checks have already been sent in March, others in April and the rest may wait till June this year. In other words, about 880,000 Maine residents would benefit from these tests, according to official figures.
