The central government of the United States of America had stopped giving stimulus checks to the citizens. However, the people have been struggling with an economic crisis since the coronavirus pandemic. Americans have been trying to stay afloat to purchase basic things like medicines, gas, and food. The Covid-19 pandemic along with the inflation and employment crisis have made it difficult for the people of America to deal with financial crunch.
Nonetheless, the federal government of the US has not done much to offer monetary assistance to the citizens. On the other hand, several US states have stepped up and provided additional stimulus checks to the residents.
Guaranteed Income In LA As Stimulus Check
Los Angeles is one such state that has come forward and offered a Program of Guaranteed Income that is worth $1,000 to eligible residents. The relief payments are likely to be sent out within the next 9 days, as reported by the Los Angeles administration.
Furthermore, another program named “Breathe” is also designed to provide stimulus checks of $1,000 to almost 1,000 eligible participants on a monthly basis. This program intends on providing this $1,000 money in installments over 3 years. The county of Los Angeles has informed that this payment will be sent in the middle of every month.
Relief Payments For LA Residents
The recipients who are eligible to receive these Breathe payments must be foster children who had been under the Department of Family and Children Services of County of LA care earlier when they had been of 21 to 23 years old. Breathe is planned to assist such beneficiaries in creating financial security.
Beneficiaries will get monthly stimulus checks through debit cards issued by them. The application was ongoing from 31st March 2022 till 13th April 2022.
