You might be lucky if you live in California as they are offering stimulus checks to their residents if they meet the requirements.
In order to qualify for the payments, you need to have a yearly income of fewer than 75,000 dollars and should be a resident of the Golden State for most parts of that year. No one should claim you as their dependent and your 2020 tax returns must be filed before 15th October.
If you meet all the above requirements you will receive $600 as well as $500 to cover for your own dependents.
You should also note the fact that, if you had received the previous round of stimulus checks you will not be receiving a new one this time.
The amount of your check will remain the same as it does not calculate the number of dependents. It only comes if you can show that you have dependents as such.

The lawmakers in California have stated that the stimulus checks will be issued before the end of the month as they will be sent out this week.

It demands 2,000 dollars for the adults and 1,000 dollars for the children on a monthly basis. It also states that the recovery has not reached several Americans and regular payments must be made to keep them going.
Florida has seen some of its teachers receive fed stimulus money.
Florid Gov. DeSantis had requested the legislature to keep aside 216 million dollars from the ESSER for delivering 1,000 dollar checks to the teachers and principals. DeSantis spoke about the first responder and how they worked every day to keep the residents safe. He has stated that he felt proud to deliver these stimulus checks and show his gratitude for their services.
