The central government of the United States of America has backed off from offering any further stimulus checks to the citizens. However, several US states have come forward to help the people during this time of inflation. People have been facing the worst economic crisis and are unable to purchase basic necessities like food, gas, and medication. As a result, this additional stimulus check from states is a great relief for the residents.
New Mexico Gives Stimulus Check
The government of New Mexico has approved providing additional stimulus checks to households with low-income levels. Only eligible families are going to receive a $400 relief payment. Nonetheless, it must be noted that applications must be filled and submitted by 7th October 2022.
This new stimulus money has been approved by the Department of Human Services of New Mexico. They have already announced that they will accept the applications till 5 PM on 7th October 2022. The applications must be sent through the website of YES New Mexico.
Details And Deadline
The spokesperson of HSD has mentioned that the number of eligible applicants will be decided after they receive the applications. Furthermore, they will decide on the amount depending on the approved applications. They have made this decision to offer relief payments to low-income households to help them manage their high living costs.
HSD has also stated that its budget is $10 million so the amount will be accommodated accordingly. State officials are going to give high priority to families with the lowest level of income. These people desperately need relief money because they are unable to buy basic things including food and gas. Many other states are also following suit and providing additional stimulus checks to their residents in the form of tax rebates.
