People who have suffered from the economic fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic can expect financial assistance from many state and local governments before Christmas, according to reports.
Americans are set to receive cash as either a stimulus check or as part of the universal basic income.
Let’s go through the list of states and cities that are offering financial assistance.
A total of nine million Californians is expected to receive checks before the end of this year as part of
the Golden State Stimulus II program. A resident of California is eligible for this cash if they are making less than $75,000 per year and have filed 2020 taxes before October 15.
The stimulus payments of Florida are expected in December. The payments are expected to be sent to first responders pre-K through 12th-grade teachers.
The eligible people are expected to get a one-time payment of $1,000. The program is likely to offer assistance to around 175,000 teachers and 3,600 principals.
Meanwhile, in Maine, the payments have already started from November 15. Half a million residents are expected to receive a one-time payment of $285.
Single filers who earn less than $75,000 per year and couples who make $150,000 or less are eligible to receive this financial assistance.
The eligible families in Maryland will receive a paycheck of $500, while individuals are expected to get $300.

In Columbia, 100 low-income fathers have started receiving recurring payments from September, while Chicago will send UBI payments for low-income households in the city.
