Some residents may be eligible for a $1,400 stimulus check, it was revealed last month. The plan aims to help residents of Washington, Iowa, who were not qualified for federal COVID stimulus money yet encountered hardships as a result of the epidemic. There are only a few days left for Iowa residents to apply for a $1,400 stimulus package.
Residents of Johnson County, Iowa, have until April 25 to apply for a one-time $1,400 award. If they struggled during the epidemic, some 2,500 Johnson County residents may be eligible for the one-time payment. To qualify, residents must fulfill specific conditions, such as a lack of food or insecure housing, job loss, or having been rejected by federal stimulus funds previously.
Lucky Iowa Residents Will Receive Stimulus Checks
You may be eligible if you qualify for a government program such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or Supplemental Security Income. A single-person household must make $45,370 or less in income, a family of two must earn $51,870, and a family of four must earn $64,805. Escucha Mi Voz Washington, an advocacy group, supports the concept. According to the group, over 140 city residents were denied federal stimulus funds in 2021. It is projected that issuing checks to these people will cost about $200,000.
One issue is that many people who qualify faced difficulties and were, therefore, ineligible for the government stimulus checks. This may result in a funding shortfall. The deadline for stimulus check submissions is May 23, 2022. One way to get around this is to give priority to those who have been most hurt.
