Fresh stimulus checks could bring in as much as $1,000 per year from the following two years to Americans. Even as lawmakers debated over a 4th stimulus check, one of the largest Native tribes announced a special impetus for its members.
Cherokee Nation declared a stimulus check of $1,000 each to its citizens over a period of 2 years. The latest stimulus payment is part of the American Rescue Plan, signed by President Joe Biden in March this year, and gives states the right to spend a certain amount in ways they think will benefit their residents.
Chuck Hosking, the principal chief, and leader of the Cherokee Nation signed legislation to provide a fresh batch of stimulus payments to the citizens belonging to the tribe based in Oklahoma. The 392,832 members of the Cherokee Nations will each get a $2,000 stimulus check which will be split into two $1,000 direct checks.
$20 Billion Worth Stimulus Check Given By Biden For Native Americans
The Biden administration had earlier provided $1.8 billion in support of the tribe. The Cherokee Nation is the second largest after the Navajo Nation based in Arizona. Hosking confirmed that the fund will cover individual assistance to its members and approve a comprehensive spending agenda.
The state of California has also taken this opportunity in providing extra support to its residents. Governor Newsom has gone ahead with plans to give stimulus checks from funds allocated by the federal government to states.
The Governor has approved a payment of $500 for all illegal immigrants. He has also waived all pending rent for residents with low income. Families with children under 13 could also stand to get as much as $8,000 as a tax credit if they hit certain conditions. It includes childcare costs of $8,000 and also the cost of caring for a parent or spouse. So a family with two and more dependents stands to get a stimulus check of $16,000.
