A program designed to assist people whose earnings have been disrupted by the COVID-19 outbreak will shortly provide $1,000 Stimulus Checks to hundreds of caregivers in Camden County, New Jersey.
The awardees will each receive a one-time Stimulus Check of $1,000 as compensation for the suffering caused by the coronavirus pandemic, according to the press release.
“This pandemic has significantly impacted every one of our lives and the majority of the nation’s sectors. Caregiving was one of the hardest hit industries because staff members were responsible for ensuring the safety of customers and loved ones seven days a week, according to Commissioner Deputy Director Ed McDonnell. “We hope that these grants will help individuals who are working these arduous occupations by offering some relief and support.”
Who Is Eligible To Get A Stimulus Check?
Who is eligible for a Stimulus Check, where the money comes from, and how beneficiaries can apply for the payment are listed below:
To qualify, you must live in Camden County or work as a caregiver for a Camden County citizen. From March 1, 2020, through March 7, 2022, demonstrate that you have provided at least 500 hours of direct care and/or necessary daily assistance to one or more elderly people, children, or adults with intellectual, physical, and developmental disabilities, or brain injuries.
To be eligible for Relief Funds under this Program, you must provide a verifiable Social Security Number or Taxpayer Identification Number. You must also complete IRS Form W-9, “Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification,” as part of the application procedure.
