Several stimulus check payments were announced in the state of Florida back in July by Governor Ron DeSantis. This was supposed to be a one-time payment worth $450 and was issued out to families that are foster parents, caregivers, or even those who were employed under the state assistance programs.
According to a report from CNBC News, the check payments were supposed to benefit close to 59,000 families who did receive the payments. In order to be deemed eligible for the payments, one should also be receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. The state of Florida also introduced a new stimulus payments scheme, which would be issued by the Department of Economic Opportunity by the state.
Stimulus Check Payments Coming To Florida Soon
Marca also went on to report that there were thousands of Americans who would be receiving a stimulus check of $1000 as part of a first responders support program. Governor DeSantis stated that the payments were made available through the Essential First Responders Recognition Program under the state. The Governor also mentioned that close to 100,000 citizens would be receiving the bonus check payments.
In order to be deemed eligible for the payment, one should still be employed as an essential first responder that serves a local government as a sworn enforcer of the law. If the said individual wasn’t working with the law, they would have to be a firefighter, emergency medical technician, or even a paramedic.
The amount of stimulus check payments that the eligible recipients will be receiving definitely differs on the number of hours that have been worked by that individual each week. So, an individual who works for around 40 hours a week will be receiving a sum of $1,000, while someone who has been working for close to 30 hours will get a payment of $750.
