Around 60,000 different families throughout Florida went on to receive letters throughout the month that informed them that they would be receiving stimulus check payments of $450. This was the direct result of a state program that was entirely intended to help those families that were struggling under the impact of inflation- geared especially towards those who fostered and adopted children.
The spokesperson for Governor Ron DeSantis, Christian Pushaw, announced on Twitter that the letters sent to the individuals were absolutely real. The payout was also aligned with First Lady Casey DeSantis’s Hope Florida: A Pathway to Prosperity Initiative.
Florida To Issue Stimulus Check Payment
In a statement, Casey DeSantis informed that she was currently on a mission to ensure that there was no child in Florida that would be going without happiness, hope, or a home. And this would definitely entail doing everything that the government in Florida could support those who had stepped up and welcomed children into their homes. It is expected that families who have been deemed eligible would be receiving a one-time stimulus check payment of $450 for every child in their care which would also offset the costs of rising inflation- especially with another new school year around the corner.
In order to be eligible for this stimulus check payment, one definitely had to be a foster parent, a relative, or a nonrelative caregiver. They could also be a participant in the Guardian Assistance Program, or the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, as of the 1st of July, 2022. Around 59,000 families have already qualified for the payment, as reported by the Florida Department of Children and Families. The payments have already been cut, and they should be arriving before the sales tax holiday in the state- which usually takes place between the 25th of July and the 7th of August.
