While many lawmakers have indicated that a fourth stimulus check is not in the cards, several states are doing everything they can to help their constituents financially.
In many places across the country, low-income households, teachers, and some specific citizens might expect to get some type of stipend.
However, because returning to regular life is still a long way off, many people are asking when a fourth stimulus check will be delivered.
Here's what's going on in several states:
Californians can look forward to the Golden State Stimulus, which will provide up to $1,100 in payouts to the state's approximately 25 million inhabitants. On Aug. 27, the aid package began rolling out, with low- and middle-income families being given priority. State officials have already approved the second stimulus check.
Since earlier this year, Gov. Ron DeSantis has approved $1,000 bonuses for Florida teachers. More than 170,000 educators and principals in K-12 public schools and public charter schools in the region will benefit from the funds. A $216 million federal stimulus package provided the total amount for the payments.
Nothing has been confirmed for the entire state of Texas, but Fort Worth and Arlington are planning a 4% salary hike for district employees. Denton and Mansfield will raise pay by 2%, with a $500 bonus for Denton employees. A $2,000 incentive will be given to teachers who return to the classroom in Irving in September.
In June, Tennessee passed a law that replaced a planned 2% raise with a $1,000 hazard pay bonus for full-time teachers. A $500 payment is available to part-time teachers.
Maryland citizens with low to moderate incomes may be eligible for $300 to $500 stimulus cheques. The additional payments are only available to those who have claimed the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) on their tax filings. The amount that households are eligible for is determined by particular income levels.
Gov. Brian Kemp has approved $1,000 compensation for all full-time teachers and administrators and $500 checks for part-time teachers. There is also a plan in the works to support pre-K teachers.
Teachers in Michigan received $500 hazard pay bonuses earlier this year, but a retention bonus has yet to be announced, as it has in Georgia and Florida.
