While many people and legislators are calling for a fourth stimulus check to be awarded, the reality is that, at the moment, there is little chance that one will be approved. But nevertheless, some states are doing their best to give their eligible residents extra stimulus money.
To give this money, the states are using the funds that are part of the American Rescue Plan, where more than $ 200,000 million dollars were allocated for them to use as they wanted, as long as it helped the economic recovery from the pandemic.
It should be noted that states have until the end of this year to use this money, so many governors are already distributing it to the people they think need it most.
