Seven states are preparing to send out direct stimulus check payments to their residents to provide inflation relief as Americans struggle to pay the rising costs of food, gas, and housing.

Here are the states which will be sending out stimulus payments to their residents as soon as this month.


In May, Delaware began sending “relief rebate” payments of $300 to taxpayers who filed a return in 2020 due to a budget surplus.

Most Delaware residents received these payments in May, and couples filing jointly can get $300 each. The state government is continuing to send these payments out throughout the summer.

In July, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that 59,000 low-income families in the state would qualify for a one-time stimulus check payment of $450 per child.



Beginning in May, Indiana began sending $125 payments to all residents regardless of income. According to The Indianapolis Star, this is part of the state’s automatic taxpayer refund law.

In early March, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham approved a measure that would give residents $250 for earning less than $75,000 a year and a $500 rebate for all residents.

The $250 rebates were issued in July while the $500 rebate will be sent in two payments — one occurred in June, and the other will occur this month.
