You may also qualify if you are eligible for a federal program like Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or Supplemental Security Income.

As far as income goes, it must be $45,370 or below for a household of one, $51,870 for a household of two, and $64,805 for a four-person household.

But know that the deadline to apply passed on Friday, May 27. 

“We reached a lot of residents who were eligible and needed support.”

All applicants will be contacted if they regardless if they have been declined or not. 

If you don’t qualify originally, the reason might be that you didn’t fill out your application correctly. 

Those affected should revise applications between June 10 and June 17, the BOS said. 

In the range of 2,300 and 2,400 residents will wind up getting $1,400 stimulus check payments, which are set to reach recipients late next month or July, according to the BOS. 

It was extended from the original May 23 deadline, as an influx of applications came in last weekend, according to the county’s Board of Supervisors (BOS).

“It became such an extreme push over that weekend and there were literally hundreds of residents who were eligible based on what they were reporting over the phone and through email… and so we made a good-faith-effort decision to extend the application,” the Board told the Press-Citizen.
