Families with low income in St.Louis may receive a monthly stimulus check of $500 provided if this plan is approved. The zonal community of Missouri has passed the plan but before turning it into law, several steps need to be cleared.
Who Is Likely To Receive This Stimulus Check?
The administration of Mayor Tishaura O. Jones’, the previous week shared the details of the proposed plan for the monthly stimulus check to families with low income. The proposal is to bless 440 households with $500 every month for 18 months using up the federal pandemic money summing to $5 million.
The monthly stimulus check would be available for guardians or parents of children with low income and who have been reading in city public schools. The money is supposed to go to those who are in deep need of monetary assistance. The proposal aims to assist families who lack money due to the pandemic.
Alderman Shameem Clark Hubbard has taken up the responsibility of sponsoring the stimulus check. Though this proposal was out the previous month itself, the minute details became public just the previous week before the bill was taken up in the committee by the aldermen.
The plan also has raised quite some questions regarding the consideration of the scheme since already several programs have been running to help with the utilities, rent, and food of the pandemic victim families. Several questions were even raised regarding sustainability after the funds got over. The bill has however not turned into a plan and it has been forwarded for further consideration to the full board. The stimulus check is however only promised up to a certain time and then it would expire.
