While a federal level fourth round of stimulus checks is still up in the air months into the push from progressive lawmakers and struggling Americans, some can expect another round of payments depending on where they’re located in the U.S.
Below are the states where Americans may receive another round of stimulus checks. The payments are coming for each state’s individualized budgets. As Yahoo! Finance reports, many of these state governors’ pushed for state-level stimulus checks for residents. Hence, the amount the stimulus checks are worth up differs for each state.
Let’s start here because the state of Texas does not have an actual COVID-19 economic relief program. Instead, local school districts are giving employees stimulus checks as known as retention bonuses. In Dallas’ Irving suburb, the stimulus checks are worth up to $2,000, while in Denton, educators will get up to $500 with a 2% pay raise. Other school districts are providing pay raises too.
The state of Tennessee will provide its full-time teachers with $1,000 stimulus checks and part-time teachers with $500 payments for making it through what is described as “the worst of the pandemic.” These payments will hit by the end of the year.
New Mexico provided 4,000 low-income households, who weren’t eligible for the federal-level payments, with state-level stimulus checks worth up to $750 in August. The program sent a total of $5 million in payments.
In Florida, educators are receiving $1,000 stimulus checks for their dedication to teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic. Florida is also giving out $1,000 stimulus checks to police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), and paramedics too.
California sent out a second wave of state stimulus checks in August. Now a third-round was sent out on Tuesday, Oct. 5. The payments range between $500 to $1,100. Californians who have dependents or who weren’t eligible for the first round of state stimulus checks are receiving more in payments this time. However, California is using its own state funding and not any from the federal level.
Pennslyvania is not on the list of states providing non-federal stimulus checks. Though like other Americans, Pennsylvanians may receive other specialized economic relief payments from the government like payments to struggling homeowners or struggling renters, or parents with co-dependents getting the monthly child tax credit. Some Pa. employees may be on the list of select workers who’ll receive payments of up to $600 this fall.
