Governor Tom Wolf called on state legislators on Wednesday to adopt a plan that would distribute $2,000 stimulus checks to Pennsylvanians to aid with rising gas, grocery, and other prices.

According to the governor’s office, Wolf’s proposed $500 million PA Opportunity Program would offer direct subsidies of up to $2,000 to Pennsylvania household incomes of $80,000 or less each year.

The American Rescue Plan Act, a $1.9 trillion national stimulus plan approved by Congress in 2021 to help states and local governments deal with the ongoing financial burden of the coronavirus epidemic, would fund the initiative.

In February, Wolf proposed a $1.7 billion plan to aid the state in recovering from the economic, healthcare, and communal destruction caused by the coronavirus outbreak. A total of $500 million was set aside in the proposal for direct payouts to Pennsylvanians. If the $1.7 billion ideas are approved, another $225 million would be allocated to small enterprises, and $250 million will be allocated to initiatives that will assist in the development of the crucial healthcare workforce.

The Republican-controlled state assembly must accept all plans.

The Stimulus Check funds must be returned to the federal govt by December 31, 2024. Wolf’s administration said in April that Democratic leaders in the Senate and House of Representatives had committed to filing laws to support Wolf’s PA Opportunity Program.

The Stimulus Check program uses $500 million in ARPA funds to offer direct payments of up to $2,000 to Pennsylvania families earning less than $80,000 per year.

The Stimulus Check initiative intends to assist families that are still recovering financially from the COVID-19 epidemic, as well as to assist them in covering pandemic-related expenditures and managing the present, rising cost of living. The one-time payment, according to the governor, would assist families who are still recovering from the epidemic while simultaneously struggling with record-high inflation.
